Before coming to Temple University to teach, Amy Caples spent more than 20 years in broadcast news. She was the co-anchor of the CBS3 morning show for six years and an Emmy-nominated reporter. I was so happy when I met someone so passionate about their job, and so willing to share advice!
Social media are media for social interaction, as a superset beyond social communication. Enabled by ubiquitously accessible and scalable communication techniques, social media substantially change the way of communication between organizations, communities, as well as individuals.
TUTV filmed a panel discussion on the increase usage of social media today. Take some time to learn about the benefits and harms that Facebook and Twitter have on our society.
For an episode of Temple Flashback on TUTV, I had the chance to talk to Marc Zumoff, the play-by-play announcer for the Philadelphia 76ers. It was truly an honor to sit down and talk to Marc (who is also an amazing broadcast coach!) about his days at Temple.

I was able to meet with Trauma Outreach Coordinator Scott Charles alongside Temple’s Chief Trauma Surgeon, Dr. Amy Goldberg who supervise the hospital-based violence prevention program right here in North Philadelphia called Cradle to Grave. The award-winning initiative designed to save the lives of young innocent teenagers and Temple University Hospital seeks to help put an end to the burden of these crimes.
These program consists of an interview of an E.R. doctor, and the inter-city youth that he and his program bring into the emergency room, at Temple University Hospital, to show gun-shot victims.
I had the amazing opportunity to interview US Attorney Zane David Memeger and Ozzy Jones about their work with local kids last February on violence in the Philadelphia community. This clip of the interview focuses on a film written and created by local kids, sponsored, in part by the US Attorney’s office. The goal is to show the impact violence has had on their families and community. Each group produced a video, with the help of instructors that relayed the students’ thoughts and visions with regard to the impact of violence on their lives and the consequences of making good life choices.
