Keaton Eberly

Multimedia Reporter and Producer

Location icon United States

We are currently living in a digital age where it is absolutely imperative for journalists to have an enriched understanding of multimedia production and market consumption. Passionate about content creation and media production, I have developed a diverse awareness in various digital mediums, which range from radio, television, online, photo, infographic design, podcasts, social media and mobile content. In addition to my experience using these various platforms, I have continued to strengthen my writing, broadcasting, analytical and public speaking skills, particularly in the sports industry. I am also proficient in Adobe Premiere, Adobe Audition, Wordpress, Squarespace, and Frequency, as well as A/V equipment. In a business world that’s continuously changing, it is time for myself to change with it through hard work and dedication.

UNC women's fencer Sydney Persing is a quick learner, as a fencer and journalist

"I feel like that does instill a sense of confidence in you when you're younger," Persing said. "I always really appreciated that." Each argument, each deposition, each family court case pushed her to who she is today - a tenacious fencer, a confident journalist, a self-described go getter.

Column: 'Logan' Oscar nomination breaks superhero genre norms

When looking at the grand scheme of things, the superhero genre is a relatively new one in global cinema. While many genre films like the gangster flick, the war film and the western have been around since before the invention of "talking pictures" in the 1920s, the superhero film did not emerge until the release of "Superman" in 1978.
