My name is Torrence Dunham and I am a freelance multimedia journalist.
Previously, I worked for eNews Arizona as their sports beat reporter and quad city news correspondent. Weekly, I produced digital articles, pictures, videos and podcasts.
The quad cities of Northern Arizona has over 103,000 residents and consists of Prescott, Prescott Valley, Chino Valley and Dewey-Humboldt. The reach of content I produced was viewed by those who live in the area and also by those around the world from web audience activity every week.
I covered the Northern Arizona Suns (the Phoenix Suns Gatorade League team), college and high school sports (football, basketball, baseball, volleyball, softball, hockey etc.) as well as sporting events such as bull riding and rodeo. In addition, I reported on community events, special interest stories, legislative, city and entertainment.
I accumulated hundreds of reactions on eNewsAZ’s various social platforms through publishing articles and doing live video along with interacting with individuals who commented.
I graduated in May of 2016 from The Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University with a bachelor’s degree in Journalism and Mass Communication.
Due to various experience both in the field and at college, I have become proficient in technology such as DSLR Cameras, hand-held and television style video cameras, editing software such as the Adobe Creative Suite as well as ENPS and WordPress.
At college, I gained experience working in the Cronkite News Phoenix Sports Bureau at Arizona State University. I covered the Arizona Diamondbacks for Cronkite News and Arizona Sports.com as well as the Phoenix Suns . I also produced packages for the Cronkite News evening newscast along with digital content for the Cronkite News website.
Throughout my time at Arizona State, I worked for Blaze Radio, Arizona’s State University’s official radio station. At Blaze Radio, I hosted the station’s award-winning fantasy sports show Fantasy Tonight. I also broadcasted live sporting events such as Arizona State baseball and softball. In addition, I worked behind the scenes with Adobe Audition creating IDs and sweepers.
In the summer of 2015, I reported in Los Angeles, California at the Cronkite News LA Sports Bureau where I produced packages on the local teams in the southern California area and covered the 2015 Special Olympic Games.
I began my professional experience at CBS Radio Phoenix, which covers KMLE Country 107.9, KOOL Classic Hits 94.5 and Live 101.5 Top 40. At this internship, I interacted with listeners, helped create show content and edited audio.
I am a quick learner and look to continue enhancing my skills as a journalist of all platforms.
