Kamrel Eppinger - Fall 2012
Kamrel Eppinger developed a passion for reporting at an early age. In elementary school in his hometown of Miami, he began reporting the weather and school announcements for his classmates.
He is now in his senior year at the University of Miami as a double major in broadcast journalism and theater and has taken full advantage of the campus’s broadcast station, UMTV. He has held a variety of positions, serving as on air talent for its premiere infotainment show, “UMTV Today,” and reporting for its Emmy-award-winning half-hour news show “ NewsVision.” He also serves as a contributing writer for the Miami Hurricane, the university’s student publication.
In the summer of 2012, he was an intern for the CBS affiliate in Doral, Fla., WFOR. He worked alongside producers, photographers and reporters. His daily tasks consisted of writing scripts for the morning newscast and assisting assignment editors on the news desk. Kamrel is excited about working in Washington and looks forward to developing his craft of broadcast reporting.
