My name is Anthony Fleet and I am a senior at La Salle University. This blog was created while I was taking an Online Journalism course in the spring of 2015. Throughout that semester, we covered a variety of topics dealing with food and nutrition (see posts below).
Since that semester has ended, I have continued to use this platform to publicly display projects in different types of media in order to diversify my skills as a multimedia journalist. My projects include video, audio, and written stories published online.
There have been several short television packages I’ve produced at La Salle University, which can be found on my YouTube page.
In addition, I was a reporter for a website called Billy Penn, which centers its content on news and information in the city of Philadelphia. Some of my stories include how the Philadelphia Eagles use their social media, and what the probability of a person getting a job at SEPTA is. SEPTA is the mass transit system that serves the Philadelphia Greater Area.
During this past summer, I attended the Clyde Hirt Journalism workshop. I covered the Hambeltonian, a major harness race that takes place at the Meadowlands Racetrack. Leading up to the race, I did a piece on a popular veteran of the sport for the Daily Racing Form.
This semester, I wrote a story about a unique parish located in North Philadelphia leading up to the Pope’s visit to Philadelphia.
I also created several graphics that contain quotes from Pope Francis regarding some controversial world issues The graphics piece also demonstrates my ability to write code for the web.
