Congratulations to STAA member Brad Hamilton, the new Sports/News Reporter at KAWE/KAWB-TV.

"I used a lot of STAA's advice on how to apply and standout," Hamilton says. "I had no clue before I signed up with STAA how to represent myself for a job in television. It was the difference in me ultimately getting a job."
