GET TO KNOW ME
Hi! My name is Sarah Simpson and I am currently pursuing a career in media production. As my first full-time professional experience, I have been working as a Newscast Director at CBS 21, WHP-TV since May 2022. I recently graduated from The Pennsylvania State University with a B.A. in Film Production, and minors in Journalism and Spanish. In college, I was the President of my university's student-run television network, Penn State Network Television (PSNtv). Additionally, for 3 years I was the Director of PSN News, a live weekly news broadcast produced by PSNtv. I was also a member of Penn State's Centre County Report, where I directed live newscasts weekly using Ross 'Overdrive' technology.
I'm from a small town in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania, just outside of Pittsburgh. Growing up, I always loved watching television shows and films and hoped to make my own someday. I began studying media production my freshman year of high school through my school's program, and haven't been able to put a camera down since. I am very fortunate to have a career doing what I love, and look forward to gaining more experience in the media industry. For future roles, I am interested in directing, live production, video editing, camera work, and writing.
