Southeast Student Combines Passions for Journalism, Music at KRCU
In the pre-dawn hours of early morning while most students are still snoozing, Southeast Missouri State University student Lindsey Grojean has already started her work day as host and producer at KRCU, southeast Missouri's NPR station broadcasting from Southeast's campus.
Grojean, of New Hamburg, Missouri, is a senior majoring in music with a minor in mass communication. She is usually up by 5 a.m., grabbing a banana and a smoothie on the way to the radio station, a job she's had for almost three years.
Her position allows her to combine her interests in reporting and music. When not hosting or preparing content for "Morning Edition," she conducts interviews, reports on events, fills in for other hosts and many other projects. She hopes the experiences and skills she's gained at her local station can lead her to new opportunities with NPR when she graduates.
