Journalism aspiration: Entertainment news anchor
From an early age, Briana Trusty has always had a passion for storytelling.
As soon as Briana stepped foot on USC's campus, she began writing for Her Campus, the #1 global community for college women, and covered a variety of topics including entertainment and lifestyle. From writing online stories for Latina Magazine in New York to shooting and editing segments for WACH Fox News right here in Columbia, Briana feels that her wide range of experiences have shaped her into a well-rounded journalist. She spent this past summer as an intern with E! News in Los Angeles. Briana really enjoyed being able to immerse herself in the world of entertainment journalism and learn from some of the best in the entertainment industry. Her favorite part of the internship was assisting Emmy Award-winning E! News host Zuri Hall with a weekly lifestyle segment.
In her spare time, Briana is a freelance news writer for an entertainment website where she is able to cover the most recent developments in pop culture and celebrity news.
Although she enjoys covering entertainment news, Briana doesn’t shy away from harder news stories and hopes to uncover and share stories of local and national importance that might not have been told otherwise.
When she’s not digging for new stories, she loves to dance and travel. She also energizes the crowd as an emcee during some of USC’s sporting events. If you have any story ideas, Briana would love to hear them. Please email her at firstname.lastname@example.org .
