Collin Schopp

WVIK News Intern

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

This is my second school year working with WVIK, and I'm excited to write, report, interview sources, and produce more stories.

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