Journalism

I've been a reporter with Lehigh University's newspaper, the Brown & White, since 2018. Since then, I've contributed numerous articles and videos to the publication, and have served as the Deputy Editor of the Multimedia Department. I'm currently writing an opinion column with the Brown & White – the latest installment can be found here.

 

Award-Winning Video Journalism

For this video, I received 2nd place in the Video Story category at the Keystone Student Press Awards, a statewide competition for Pennsylvania student journalists, as well as Lehigh University's Williams Prize.

 
 

Radio

The Shindig: Sundays 7-9 on WLVR Bethlehem HD2 and online at wlvr.org

Every week I throw together a hot mix of my favorite jams and throw it out into the void, jumping in intermittently to chat about ghosts, aliens, Disney Channel Original Movies, and whatever else is on my mind.

 

Podcast

Prof Talks with Laney Delaney

In collaboration with WLVR and the Brown and White, I produce a podcast called Prof Talks, where I interview Lehigh professors about their lives and topics related to their field of study. Each episode is approximately an hour long. In addition to interviewing the professors, I also edit the audio for broadcast and publish it on the Brown and White's website. You can listen to the published episodes below!

 
 
Social Content

As an intern for Lehigh University's Communications and Public Affairs office, I coordinated the launch of the official university TikTok account. Currently, in maintaining the account, my job is to reach out to organizations on campus that could create successful TikTok content, as well as to create original content ideas on my own, and post them to the account.

Previously, I've also developed social content on Twitter for Sugar Shack doughnuts (now Elizabeth's Counter) in Alexandria, Virginia. I also take a lot of pride in my own Twitter account, and have been featured on popular Instagram meme account @beigecardigan.

Sauce Blog

For roughly a year, I ran an instagram account where I reviewed dipping sauces. I did everything from big fast food chains to food trucks on campus, and it spiraled into something that got me gigs judging food competitions and pageants. 

 

Additional Evidence of Competency and Personability

I auditioned and was selected to perform original material as the opening act for comedians the Lucas Brothers for their show at Lehigh University this past November.
