Collin Schopp

WVIK News Intern

I'm currently a Junior at Augustana College, working on a major in Multimedia Journalism and Mass Communication. In addition to interning at the station, I also work for the Augustana Observer, the college's official student newspaper, as the Arts and Entertainment Editor. 

This is my first internship through the MJMC program, and I'm excited to write, report, interview sources, and produce stories.

Once out of school, I want to pursue a career in radio broadcast.
