Interview with Greeley Kyle
Professor Greeley Kyle is a teacher and a doer. Before joining the UMass faculty in 2014, he taught broadcast journalism for 20 years at the University of Missouri, and before that he lead the investigative reporting team for the local NBC affiliate in Memphis, Tennessee.
Over the years, he has helped hundreds of students produce video stories, and he shared five stories as good examples of the "CCCs" he discussed: The Cancer Letters by Jana Shortal from WCCO, Piano Prodigy by John Larson, Iraq Grad by Barry Simmons from WTVF, Potato Prison by Steven Stalk and Marc Rice from WESH and One More Dead Building by Scott Goldberg and Gary Knox from KARE 11.
