“The connections you can make in Boston, as well as the opportunities in the surrounding areas here, are second to none in the media industry. Being at Curry, there are so many different ways to get your foot in the door early, at places like NESN, The Boston Globe and Gillette Stadium, home of the New England Patriots and Revolution.”

CC8's Coverage of Boston Marathon Bombings Recognized by National Broadcasting Society
February 21, 2014
Curry College Television's (CC8) coverage of the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings was recognized as a 2014 finalist by the National Broadcasting Society in the category of Video Magazine Program. The 15 minute segment from "Curry Prime Time Report" (video embedded below) includes students reporting from the field during the week of the bombings, city lockdown and subsequent manhunt, and interviews with Curry faculty and alums impacted by the week's events.
The program was anchored by Matt Fitzgerald '13 and Ana Bottary '13. Field segments were produced by Peter Maxwell '14, who reported from Boston and Watertown locations. Interviews included Community Health and Wellness major and professional EMT and firefighter Brian Gray '14, who attended to victims on the scene after the initial blasts, and Watertown residents Dr. Allan Hunter (Curry English professor) and Steve Tagarelis '09 (Communication), whose homes were both under lockdown during the day of the final chase and shootout.

Maxwell's name was also added to the NBC News Emmy entry for their own coverage of the Marathon bombings. Acting as an independent associate producer, Maxwell facilitated an interview between a local firefighter and a victim he rescued, which aired on the "Today" show.
"Our CC8 news crew sprang into action the week of the Boston Marathon bombings and their efforts are now being recognized on a national level. Congratulations to these aspiring news professionals," said Professor Jerry Gibbs, Director of the TV/Digital Video concentration.
