Lindsay had been working as a freelance reporter before coming to AJO, but in her second semester in the program, she landed a job as a Broadcast Associate at CBS News, where she utilizes her broadcasting skills working on the true-crime show 48 Hours.

Making the transition from print to broadcast was no easy feat, but thanks to the AJO program and the tools I gained along the way, I found my footing and am excelling in my career. The program taught me the importance of cultivating relationships with editors, producers, and colleagues and the various layers that exist within the industry. I perfected my true-crime beat with the help of several professors and now spends her days immersed in it. I can’t thank the program enough for giving me the push I needed to reach my dreams!”
