Media literacy is the process of asking questions about what you watch, see, listen to and read.
Austin Monheit is a 2011 Temple University graduate with a B.A. in Broadcasting, Telecommunications, and Mass Media. I joined the Media Education lab in the Fall of 2011 as a Research Assistant. I have worked as a Media Instructor at One Bright Ray Inc. where I taught students how to use various forms of media, how to use the Internet for research purposes, and how to conduct interviews within the community. My latest working experience was at 97.5 The Fanatic where I among other things was responsible for selecting and editing show content and interviews with local and national professional athletes that were later used for the station’s website or programming.
I am a highly motivated and energetic individual who enjoys competing in and watching sports, meeting new people, taking on new challenges, and resolving conflicts as a leader. Baseball is my biggest passion, having traveled across the country visiting different Major League Baseball stadiums and annually making trips to Spring Training in Florida to watch the Phillies. My ultimate goal is to work in the sports industry in some capacity where I can continue my relationship with sports and deliver my passion to other people.
