Growing experience: Detroit Lakes native earning scholarships for work on UND’s ‘Studio One’ show
Detroit Lakes native Katy Wilson is an intern for Studio One, an award-winning television show produced at the University of North Dakota.
This is her second semester with Studio One, and she is currently a video journalist and audio operator. Wilson generates story ideas, interviews various people relating to a story topic, writes scripts, shoots and edits video. She also runs the audio board when the live show is produced. Last semester she was a teleprompter operator.
“What I’m doing here is perfect for what I want to do as my career, but in an environment that allows me to learn from my mistakes and build my portfolio,” says Wilson.
Along with Studio One, Wilson is also involved in her sorority, Alpha Chi Omega, and is a member of UND’s Advertising club. She is a recipient of the Charles Burke Broadcasting Scholarship and the Kristin Skari Memorial Scholarship, as well as Studio One’s Recognition of Excellence award for her hard work and dedication to the program.
Wilson graduated from Detroit Lakes High School in 2009, and is currently a senior in communication at UND. She is minoring in mathematics and sociology. After graduation, Wilson would love to work as a TV anchor or television host.
