Hello, my name is Kevin Lankey and I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication (concentration in Mass Media, and a minor in Film Studies) from La Salle University.
A degree from La Salle University enabled me to receive training in, not just media, but public relations, communication management, and organizational communication.
TV Experience: Working for La Salle TV, a public access channel reaching over 300,000 subscribers in the Philadelphia area, gave me hands on training with how to produce a television show from scratch. I was the Executive Producer for a weekly show about La Salle Athletics, and I was a Co-Producer for a game show. Being a producer gave me training in how to handle a fast-paced work environment while working with tight deadlines.
Radio Experience: I recently held a position at WOR Radio in New York, where I was a News Desk Assistant. This position gave me valuable training in handling tight-deadlines. In this position I assisted the anchor of producing top of the hour newscasts. I also filled in for the First Morning News Producer.
For WEXP Radio at La Salle University, I was Program Director. I produced a show about professional wrestling. Around campus, there was not a strong interest in professional wrestling, so I had to figure out how to reach my key demographic: the Internet. Using my marketing experience, I was able to reach out and expand my listenership from 10 listeners a week, to over 2,000 listeners a week.
Digital Media Experience: Along with expanding my radio show audience by using digital media, I am also fortunate to be a part of a new digital media hub launched by the New Jersey Devils hockey organization. As Project Manager for our Facebook project, I am responsible for coming up with strategic campaigns to draw fans to our project.
