During the January episode of TGIM, The Dean's List welcomed Fred Shropshire, to the virtual stage.
The Emmy-Nominated and RTDNAC Award Winning news anchor and reporter is based in Charlotte, NC and has covered everything from presidential campaigns to pop culture.
Shropshire has covered notable events such as Barack Obama's first presidential run in 2008, the 2005 World Series and the pop king Michael Jackson's memorial service in Los Angles.
At his current position at WCNC-TV, Shropshire focuses on features and breaking news for the Charlotte community.
While chatting with The Dean's List founder, Meredith Dean over Instagram live, Shropshire talked about everything from harnessing your own digital brand in media, making connections, balance of a personal life and how to navigate the world of broadcast media.
Our takeaways from Fred:
1. It's good to know a little bit about everything that is going on.
2. A digital brand and online presence is key for viewers to feel a personal connection.
3. We must move toward empathy; understanding but also feeling ones pain.
4. It's important to have people in your life that will check on you.
