Evaluation The marketing team keeps careful records of events, class presentations and community outreaches. The team often uses Google Docs to help organize information. The goal of keeping track of the season is to see what items are generating the most return on investment. The team has a limited budget and the effectiveness of events must be carefully monitored. This section includes evaluation of audience attendance, class presentations, events on campus, why students applied for the internship and the budget.

Audience Development Each semester, a portion of the marketing team is responsible for generating a studio audience. Fall 2011 = 133 guests Spring 2011 = 165 guests Fall 2011 = 141 guests  09‐22‐11

End of Semester | Evaluation: Booths:  September 23 ‐ Water  hand out – potato bowl  run   

September 27 – Gamble  Booth   

 September 28 – O’kelly  Booth (outside)   

 

Fun event for S1 to be involved in the community  Small brand awareness – just the table cloth and the runners  weren’t really looking to learn more   Good video footage but more of a service than a promotion  Suggestions:   Help with the French fry feed – this event would make it easier to  promote the internship because people mingle more that this event  and there may be more students.   Gamble booths are very successful. The location of the booth makes  it easy to talk to students passing by. Also, the booth is right next to  the most used classroom for the marketing department, therefore  we always catch really solid marketing students during our booths  in gamble. This semester we coordinated it well with the class  schedule and busy days, we got many sign ups and interested  students   Very slow in between classes – but the people in the computer lab  that just walk buy would come and stop by for a little longer to talk   Flagging people down really did help getting people to stop   ipad helped build intrigue   Suggestions:   We could try to do a booth on the 2nd or 3rd floor – right by the  elevators possibly on the same day   There’s a lot of traffic around the political science classes with  would be on the 2nd and 3rd floors of Gamble.   Hand out apple cider with pre mix – although if you had enough  people then it did work ok.  Cider would be a good hand out –  smells good and sometimes people don’t like coffee   Highly successful. The root beer floats were a huge HIT! The bees  not so much. Although it was hard to do the Studio One spiel to the  students that came there (because of the extremely high amount of  students gathering around our booth for the floats), we had the  highest number of sign‐ups that day I believe, and a lot of students  that were interested enough to stick around and listen to our  promotional speech about Studio One   Root beer floats needed WAY more people to help man the booth.  3 people were not enough to promote the show while serving up  ice cream.   There were a lot of different  majors/ROTC/engineering/anthropology   This booth was a good public awareness event   The location was good – right outside of Okelly  Suggestions:   Maybe try something like Oatmeal  Cream Pies/ 

 

The magnets would have been a good fit for this event  Brought signs and put them on the sidewalk that lets people know  what they ‘re getting gin line for   Do more outdoor handouts   The location was good – right outside of Okelly  MU Display Case   Cutouts looked professional and classy  Suggestions:   It was hard because the background was black so maybe get a white  or RED sheet and hang it in the back so silhouette stands out   GO neon and then put the tie as the same color as the background    There weren’t things to hang stuff on   Take some basic supplies like tape along   Make the booth slightly interactive and tape one of the QR Codes  onto the glass/applications outside of the case   Oct – 4 – Memorial union   Good impact with logo recognition  Booth – right in front of   It helps lots of different types of students to know that S1 logo is a  popcorn  campus logo   This was the booth where the booth was closer to market place   UPC showed us up with free T‐shirts and they had a lot of people  overlapping with S1 booth   Getting people from other teams  ‐especially with other teams since  we’re talking to so many different types of students  Suggestions:   There is always a lot of traffic in the union around lunch hour, and  then close to none when lunch hour is over. Maybe we should focus  on only being there from 11‐1:30pm, that way we catch the heavy  foot traffic without dragging on for the time frame that close to  nobody is there. I always enjoy the union booths, there is such a  wide variety of our target market that we get the chance to practice  our message and speaking to all the different segments of our  target market. It educates the interns on how to properly approach  and present the different students, and how to tailor the correct  message to them.    Space yourself away from other booths with free stuff   Encourage students from other teams help with booths because  they are good at telling others about the variety of experience  Studio One offers.  Oct – 5 – Squires Booth   This booth was a good idea, but probably not the best solution for    promoting Studio One.  The set up made it almost impossible to  keep students by our booth to talk to them, because that meant  holding up the line for the rest of the students. This again could  result in negative views    It is a great idea for a booth, but next time we should try to do it  outside. That way we could catch the wave of people that have  already eaten and might stop and hang out for a little while. Also,  we will not be in anybody’s wave   This is the ultimate location for our “Unknowns”, it would be a great 

place to start spreading awareness for the program    Most people didn’t want to lose their place in line  Suggestions:   Needed a booth in the exit side, the entrance side was way too  crowded   This booth needed to be outside and just quickly hand out the  paper   The booth was really slow at first and they didn’t want to talk at  first   Maybe try to set up for booths at the end but they stopped by  before they left   Team recommended to put the table outside    Maybe shift the event so that it builds awareness and not so much  to get sign‐ups  Oct – 10‐13 Table Tents   Table tents had a really sweet design this year. Made it easier to    reuse, catch your attention and don’t crumble after the first day of  curious freshmen playing with them.  I think it’s a better design  than the previous years “triangle” shaped table tents, and more  sturdy as well.    It was fun having actually having pics from the season on the table  tent  Suggestions:   If I remember correctly we missed out on a few days for this week’s  table tents? We should try to stay on top of our deadlines;  otherwise we might miss out on impacting a larger number of our  target market than intended.   Next semester – MORE FACES  Oct – 11 –Hughes Fine   Not the most successful booth on campus. Although I think we  Arts Center   should set up a booth here in the future. There was not a lot of    interest for Studio One, but we had a few pretty solid candidates  from the building interested in graphics and photography. Even  though we might not get the highest % of applicants from this  building, we might get a few solid ones as well as spread awareness   Difficult because there was a test that day on the 2nd floor so many  people were freaking out about the test  ‐ there were about 100  people in the class and all freaking out   People were kind of on the outskirts of campus and trying to get to  another class quickly   The people that did stop to talk they did stay to chat   Prizes really did help engage people  Oct‐ 12 – Memorial union   There is always a lot of traffic in the union around lunch hour, and  This was the first booth  then close to none when lunch hour is over. Maybe we should focus  of the four across the  on only being there from 11‐1:30pm, that way we catch the heavy  entrance of marketplace  foot traffic without dragging on for the time frame that close to  (better location)  nobody is there. I always enjoy the union booths, there is such a    wide variety of our target market that we get the chance to practice  our message and speaking to all the different segments of our 

target market. It educates the interns on how to properly approach  and present the different students, and how to tailor the correct  message to them.    Also, our Wheel of Fortune is a HUGE success. Especially when we  have such sweet prizes!     Gave away a ton of free stuff and started running out of prizes  Oct – 14 – Radio –   A lot of confusion surrounding this radio appearance. I tried to  1310KNOX  listen to the 104 station, but I never hear anything about Studio    One, come to find out it’s on an AM station.    Although it’s nice to get the awareness out there whenever we can,  I think this particular station has too small of a % of our target  market, that its not really worth pursuing. Next year it would be  better to check out the major stations in the area, and go on those.   Maybe even go back to XL93 and give them another chance? Even  though the Dj is a (insert here), we could perhaps talk to  Jordan/Jordo (whatever his name is) instead?    It was good that we were on the AM station but try to set it up  again.  The team was on there for about 10 or 15 mins   It was a full interview but it was really really really good to have Jon  there to fill in some of the details about other positions   It was good to go over questions and they asked a lot of questions  about behind the camera so:   o How do you get your news and stories  o It’s ok to not be on camera questions  o Where the show plays  o Applicants  o How many people were in Studio One?  o How to watch the show   This is basically a great practice place before going on some of the  evening FM radio shows   It was a public awareness event not a recruitment event.  It would  reach a different market   Suggestions:    More radio events in general  Oct 16‐18 – Table Tents   Table tents had a really sweet design this year. Made it easier to    reuse, catch your attention and don’t crumble after the first day of  curious freshmen playing with them.  I think it’s a better design  than the previous years “triangle” shaped table tents, and more  sturdy as well.   looked great, if we could leave them up longer or not set up then  take down just to set up again would be nice  Oct 17 – Merrifield Booth   Along with Gamble, the Merrifield booths are by far the most    successful ones. So many solid students that show a great deal of  interest in the program. The setup of the booth makes it easy to  talk to students, and we catch a lot of foot traffic in between  classes. Even though its quiet when class is in session, it’s very  beneficial to stay there for several hours to catch the waves of 

student before they go to class or right after class. Most of our sign  ups come from this building   The coffee hand out was a great turn out    Move to the 2nd floor and all of the Com/Graphics classes are up on  that floor   Maybe do two booths one on the first floor and the other on the 2nd  Lots of different team members from other teams were able to help  and coffee/candy/prizes   Coffee creamer helped    Apple cider would also be a great fit  Oct 19 – Gamble booth   Gamble is a perfect place to promote the marketing team; we seem    to create more awareness of the program as well as more interest.  Once students know it’s not all about TV they get much more  excited about the internship   This booth was so slow and painful because we didn’t have prize  wheel and it was terrible and there was an intern by themselves.  Also Jimmy Johns was handing out sandwiches outside  Suggestions:   Booths need to have more than one person at the booth   Items need to be appealing and prize wheel is a great way to  engage others   Think of other handouts besides coffee – the little kiosk, “Hot  Perks” sells coffee so we can’t really sabotage their business by  giving coffee away.  Oct 20 – planned tee shirt   It seems that the company we go through always take longer than  day (but no shirts)  intended on making the shirts. And I believe we even ordered them    earlier this year! Maybe we should look into going through  someone else, or make some kind of a contract with them to make  sure that if we don’t get them on our agreed upon deadline we get  refunded x‐amount of our money. After all, there is a reason for our  deadline. We want to be able to use them before the application  deadline hits.  Suggestions:   Go with a simple design   Black shirts with a bold logo   Some kind of design that is a little bolder  Oct 21 – Night Life   Grocery Bingo has always highly successful event.  The event draws  in over 100 students every time (even when we hosted it on  homecoming game!). It is the ultimate opportunity to spread  awareness about the internship   Negative:  o This semester, due to some technological difficulties and  miscommunication, we weren’t able to set up the booth,  information and recruitment video for Studio One. Although  the event was very successful, with a very large audience,  the message about Studio One got lost in the mix. Many of  them had no clue that S1 hosted it or what S1 is.  Although, 

we did present the internship before we started, but more  and more people were arriving as the Bingo was going on so  many of them never got that message  o Also, Night Life wasn’t as well informed about what was  going to happen either. There were no gift bags set up, only  loose gift cards to hand out to the crowd.    But we did a great job printing the posters out early   No place to tack up posters in Squires  Suggestions:   Make sure everybody knows who is setting the  booth up, and agree on the meeting prior to the  event who will be setting it up and where all the  equipment/info is to avoid stupid technology to fail  us again   Make sure Night Life is well informed about what  we want when it comes to gifts; gift bags with  candy, swag and gift cards (see previous semester)   Great way to reach students! (especially young ones) we need to  plan it on a day where more Studio One people can come, we can  set up a booth and actually talk to the students   Have more people come but the date kept changing and there are  many different people in Greek homes that were unable to attend.   Oct 25 – Merrifield Booth   Same goes for the previous booth:     Semester 2012!! Good Along with Gamble, the Merrifield booths  are by far the most successful ones. So many solid students that  show a great deal of interest in the program. The setup of the booth  makes it easy to talk to students, and we catch a lot of foot traffic in  between classes. Even though its quiet when class is in session, it’s  very beneficial to stay there for several hours to catch the waves of  student before they go to class or right after class. Most of our sign  ups come from this building   Also, got quite a few applications filled out for this booth. Even one  for Fall   Suggestions:   Coffee was a hit at this booth. 60 cups went in about an hour.  Oct 26 – tee shirt day   All the marketing team students wore their t‐shirts for this day –  (planned)  GREAT JOB! Nobody forgot. Not sure if the rest of the interns wore  their t‐shirts, but they were all well informed by Victoria and  Suzanne   Interns really like the cut/color   Announce and then put it on when talking to other interns about  picking it up  Oct 27 – Application   70 applicants! Perfect amount of applications, not too many, not  deadline  too few. Also a lot of very solid applicants, great job to the    marketing team and all the interns from the other teams that  helped out!   100% ‐ of our recruitment goals

Great job Glen for designing these  sweet magnets. So many  students/teachers/randoms were  impressed with the design and asked  specifically for a magnet if they won  something else at the booth!  Cheap and easy to make! Great  giveaway, loved it!  High quality and looked great  Apply now could have been  bigger/different color  Budget to order more    Not the quality I was expecting, but the  design is sweet and it was a HUGE hit at  the booths! Definitely something to  rethink for next semesters promos   Disappointing, not the big draw we  thought they’d be! Let’s try something  new next semester  Waterbottles looked really soft in the  photo but they are hard to fill and it  was hard – hydration station didn’t  recognize the bottle  S&S could maybe give us some favorite  items or we could talk a field trip  downtown  T‐shirts were super cool this year! The  only negative thing was that they  arrived way too late for us to truly  benefit from them before the  application deadline  Awesome color and design – good fit  To be effective we really needed this  way earlier in the semester!!! This  should be one of the first things we  work on next semester.   Maybe get a sample of this shirt as well  so the girls could see how small/big  they were 

  Posters 

Again, Glen, solid work! And thanks to  everybody on the marketing team that 

 

Stickers    

 

 

helped Glen make them! We’ve gotten  so many compliments for these  posters, by far the best posters Studio  One has ever seen! Recommend that  we stay with this idea for next semester  as well   Awesome design and style! Very eye‐    catching!  Targeting students by major  really makes sense.   The marketing posters say spring  2011…..  Suggestions:     proof read and then do it again.   Stickers on the coffee sleeves were a  hit. I still see this guy in my  management class drink for a Studio  One sticker‐covered coffee cup every  Monday and Wednesday! That’s some  awesome “product” placement right  there.   Easy and cheap way to advertise! We  should definitely do it again! It would  be nice if we could create stickers that  were in the same style and design as  the posters and magnets.   Reserve stickers EARLY for coffee  sleeves   Paper roll sticker option – huge sticker   When picking up the coffee sleeves  they didn’t know what it was for – and  then they didn’t know what it was for  and then we had to do it at a later date 

Promo items from businesses   Lots of awesome promo items this year. Great job to everybody that got the hook‐ups!    Keep in mind though next year: try to get ones that don’t have an expiration date on them, or at  least ones that don’t expire 1 month after you get them (thanks Carmike)   Easy to get and a good incentive for students to get involved!  Table Tents:   Much better design on table tents this  year, sweet pictures and much more  sturdy than the triangle ones       General suggestions: 

More booths at the weather buildings on campus – Meteorology students  FREE  banner poser printing options  ‐ 3x5 foot banner: http://www.buildasign.com/college   Use text‐in promotions: http://www.textmarks.com/  Reserve table tents/coffee sleeve stickers early

ENews Letters Several students on the marketing team are responsible for writing feature stories about former interns. The electronic letters are sent to more than 700 Studio One alumni and friends of the project.

Sarah Spencer, a Portland, Ore. native, started at an intern at Studio One in 2002 and held many different on air positions throughout her four semesters on the project. She was a news reporter, news anchor, assistant news director and a sports reporter. She says she has many fond memories from her time with the program. One of her favorites includes attending and winning many awards on the behalf of Studio One at the Midwest Journalism Conference. However, she also remembers the little things like going to Taco Bell before the show, rollerblading to the studio and editing video late into the night.

As a kid, Spencer says she always wanted to be a marine biologist. With aspirations of swimming in the deep blue, it may be strange that this alumna went to a place nearly 1,500 miles from the nearest ocean. The inspiration to attend the University of North Dakota came from her grandma. “I’d always assumed I’d attend the University of Oregon but when it came time to start applying, my Grandma (who is a [UND] alum) gave me her Alumni Review,” and after further research, Spencer decided it was the perfect place. As it turns out, the decision to attend UND brought her closer to her own family history. “My grandmother’s childhood home was on the Ray Richard’s farm (today its home to the golf course)! She

met my Grandfather at UND while she was teaching biology in O’Kelly Hall (where most of my communication classes were held) and I ended up graduating 60 years after she did, to the day.”

Spencer is now serving up her Studio One skills at her position as a Recruiting and Training Specialist at Columbia Distributing. This company is a beverage supplier that is based out of Portland, Ore. which products include wine, non-alcoholic and malt beverages. It is one of the nation’s largest beverage suppliers that deliver across the northeast. Spencer works in the Human Resources department as a Recruiting and Training Specialist. In her position at Columbia Distributors, Spencer says she uses the experience she gained at Studio One on a daily basis. “Professionalism, the ability to think outside the box, meet deadlines, work with all types of personalities, communicate effectively” are just some of the tools she gained from her experience at Studio One. While doing presentations for her new hires or when speaking at colleges she says she still “gets to tap into my previous Studio One anchor self.” Along with her skills, she is also tapping into the skills of another alumnus. Spencer is coordinating with Studio One alum, Josh Andersen, to create a “Studio One style recruiting video” to help recruit new hires for Columbia Distributing.

This alumna’s job description includes hiring the sales force, as well as all the marketing and management positions. Spencer develops recruitment plans and implements them at local colleges. She conducts initial employment interviews and coordinates training sessions with new hires. Spencer must make the tough decisions when it comes time to decide who is right for a certain position. “I listen for anything from the candidate that indicates a strong work ethic, dependability, potential to grow, and genuine enthusiasm.” she explains.

Spencer says she loves living on the West Coast because of all it has to offer. “Portland has an awesome variety of activities that suit everyone from the urban crowd, all the way to the extreme outdoorsy types,” she explains. This alumna makes sure she spends plenty of time outside the office. She plays for a local hockey team and enjoys salmon fishing, hiking and camping. She’s also taken up new hobbies “I’ve always wanted to try golf, so I’ve recently started taking lessons and I’m already hooked!”

This alumna’s story shows that building a diverse skill set in college can give students an edge in the workplace and that Studio One expertise and connections last after graduation. Back to stories

One little seed, one big impact By: Richelle Ballenger

Experience, dedication and an entrepreneurial mindset are tools for building a career. Studio One alumni Jared Stober added another ingredient to the mix – flax seed. Stober is no stranger to developing plans and putting ideas in action. As a Studio One marketing team member, he helped create a marketing plan and execute ideas in order build awareness for the program. “I used that experience from Studio One to help grow the [my family’s] business,” explained Stober. Currently he works as the Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Flax USA. His duties include, “securing new markets, [with] new product development, managing [the] sales team and developing short and long term strategies. “ He says the fun and professional setting of Studio One provided a real world experience that has helped him grow his family’s business.

With hopes of moving somewhere warm after graduation, Stober was not expecting to become intricately involved with this home-grown company. “I never would have thought I would still be in the flax business, but here I am.” He quickly helped the company expand after his college graduation, but the seeds of growth were planted in Stober’s mind while at UND. He used Flax USA as a business model for an internship through the entrepreneurship program at the Center for Innovation. “[I] developed a business plan [for Flax USA and] recognized the opportunity to take the business to the next level.” This included entering mass retail markets. “Within the first year [of working at Flax USA] we entered Sam’s Club and Costco nationwide. Since then, we have continued to enter additional markets and develop new products.”

The Stober farm started more than 100 years ago but became a business in 2001. They introduced the world to Golden Omega Flax, a 100 percent natural hybrid flax seed. Golden Omega Flax is produced for markets nationwide. This small seed has captured the attention of some famous faces like Andrea Martin (My Big Fat Greek Wedding, SCTV), Rich Sommer (Mad Men, The Office) and the U.S. silver medal winning water polo team.

Flax seed is available in many forms and can be found in flaxmilk, seed, sprinkles or oil but it also has turned up in unexpected dishes. Some people add flax seed to meatloaf, cookies and cocktails. “The trick is to find what works for you,” says Stober. “Some people use flax in oatmeal, cereal, salads, baking, juice, yogurt or any [other] favorite food.” Now the country is getting a chance to check out this North Dakota product. “We just launched the world’s first ever Flaxmilk in Wal-Mart Inc stores nationwide a few months ago.”

For Stober, the benefits of flax seed go beyond health. “My favorite part is being able to build a business from scratch and watch it grow over the years. It will be interesting to see what will happen next. When I first started selling flax, no one knew what the benefits were. But now almost everyone has heard of Omega-3. It’s great knowing that we are providing nutrition to our customers and helping people get the health benefits of Omega-3.” The small seed that helped start the Stober’s family business, has helped their company grow beyond North Dakota boundaries and into a nation-wide product.

Cross country career By: Richelle Ballenger

After graduation, many people move back home, continue working at their current job or start the journey of searching for their dream career. Studio One alumnus Jayson Loeppke took the scenic route. Instead of sending out resumes, he traveled across the U.S. to experience new opportunities.

During his time at Studio One Loeppke was a member of the marketing team, working as a green room attendant and helping promote the show to potential interns and audience members. “Looking back on my time at Studio One, it was all very enjoyable. My favorite parts however were on show days when I would get to sit in the green room and talk with the guests. I love meeting people and hearing about their life.” It is his passion for people and interest in the healthcare industry that lead him to becoming an Employment Team Associate in the Human Resources Department at Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, D.C. Loeppke says Studio One’s core values have helped him succeed. “Studio One helped me get here by being such a great building block in experience by working with people, gaining writing skills, knowing what a professional should be, and how great leaders are worth their weight in gold. Every time I walk into a meeting, help develop new strategies for the hospital or [bring] on board new employees; all [that] experience was first developed in the marketing meetings, developing new plans for the upcoming season, and greeting people in the green room.” Taking the time to explore the country and his career options led Loeppke to finding a great fit in Washington, D.C. “I knew I wanted to explore the country and try living in different areas outside [my] comfort zone. I actually wound up in Washington, D.C. by chance,” Loeppke explained. “I took the time after graduation to experience different areas by taking a couple trips with my dad, one trip out to New York and a motorcycle trip to Phoenix, Ariz.” During his travels Loeppke was influenced by the experiences that took place. Standing in the audience of the Today Show holding a poster designed to showcase his talents and skills, riding through the desert and re-evaluating his choice cities to live put the country’s Capital on his list of places to find a career. “I set up interviews, lined up a trip to Washington, D.C. for one week and before I knew it, I had accepted a position at Georgetown University Hospital and was packing my car for a drive to Washington, D.C.”

Even though his adventures led him to a career on the East Coast, Loeppke feels that his education in the Midwest shaped his character. His experience at Studio One and ambition for adventure after graduation opened opportunities Loeppke says he never would have found had he stayed in one place. “Don’t be scared to jump on an opportunity. Take all that comes to you. You never know where they may lead.” Loeppke’s travels that took him across the country brought him to a coveted destination – a career.

If you're not careful you'll catch the TV bug too  By: Maddy Ackerman  This Studio One alumna caught the TV bug after her first live broadcast at Studio  One. Now she’s made it a life‐long career.     Kaylee Nesdahl, a Studio One alumna, works as a producer for KVLY/KXJB in  Fargo, N.D. She says she uses the skills and techniques she learned at Studio One  every day. Nesdahl first learned to edit video and write scripts while she was an  intern with Studio One. She adds the internship helped her work as a part of a  team, something she is still doing at KVLY.  “What went on air every Thursday  night [at Studio One] was a reflection of everyone, not just the work of one  person,” she says. This team oriented attitude is just one aspect of what makes  Nesdahl a success.    Nesdahl, a Larimore N.D. native, says choosing UND as her next move after high school was not a hard sell.  “I know how  great the community is. Of course, the school is known nationally for its quality of education. The combinations of those  two elements made it a no‐brainer for me.” Nesdahl explains she found her niche at UND with Studio One. She spent the  rest of her college career with the program as a feature reporter, the associate producer and producer.  Nesdahl  remembers reporting had its share of surprises.     The most bizarre story this past journalist covered was on an 80’s  cover band called Hairball. “They were out of control!” she says.  This unique story about men wearing tight leather pants; in full  make‐up singing rock ballads won Nesdahl an Award of Merit in the  2009 North Broadcast News Association competition in the  Broadcast Writing category.     This alumna always thought she wanted to go into print rather than  TV. “I wanted to write, that was for sure...but the addition of sound  and video and real time interaction was so alluring that I couldn't  settle for newspapers and magazines.” It was adrenaline of the  lights and action that helped this alumna catch an incurable case of the TV bug. 

Love is on the air By: Maddy Ackerman

‘Twas the eve of live show day and throughout Skalicky Tech, interns were scurrying with workloads up to their neck. It was in Edit Bay D that there came a jovial sound, in this place flirtatious laughter was not regularly found. It was the interns Kira and Matt, the two were editing weather footage in the room where they sat. Although they first met at Studio One, their saga is far from done. Here follows the story of the interns continued success, at a TV station in Wisconsin they continue to impress.' For two Studio One alumni, their pursuit of higher education lead to the titles of “Mr. & Mrs.” This story begins when Matt Benz started his Studio One internship as a weather team intern in 2003. He continued with the program until he graduated in 2007. He was a weather producer, weather anchor and feature reporter. Benz says even though he wasn’t a journalism major, he learned about writing scripts thanks to the help of “Monte and his red pen.” Perhaps the Studio One memory that Benz will remembers most is how he meet his wife. Benz met Kira Dordal while both were weather interns. They even went out on shoots together. Matt was the photographer and Kira was the reporter. “My favorite memory of us working together at Studio One was when we went out on a story on a very cold day and had to go to a horse barn and we just about froze our fingers off!” he says. Kira adds that she also remembers this fateful shoot, “I convinced him he wanted to wake up early on a Friday to come with me and see some horses.” They started dating soon after. “We still joke about cold horses to this day,” Kira says. Although the two were close in spirit their careers led them apart. When Matt graduated in 2007 he got a job in Rhinelander, Wis. “I started off at my current station as weekend meteorologist, but was very quickly promoted to morning meteorologist/reporter. Because of my reporting experiences with Studio One, I stepped into reporting here with very little trouble.” Kira graduated in 2008 but accepted an internship at WDAY in Fargo, ND, making a visit to Rhinelander an eight hour commute. In December 2008 she accepted a job closer to the heart. “I got a job at WXOW in La Crosse, WI as the weekend meteorologist/ weekday reporter,” she says. Her new position reduced the travel time to four hours. Even after the Benzs tied the knot, each one had a home in two separate cities.

Since working at WJFW in Rhinelander, Wis. Benz has developed his own outdoor segment that he shoots, writes and edits himself. “Studio One helped me to be confident with producing these stories because you were taught all the facets that help you to become a good writer, a good photographer and a good reporter.” Benz’s past Studio One knowledge also helped him to upgrade the graphics at the station, used to tell weather stories. “I was responsible for upgrading and retooling our weather graphics to create new looks.” After a few years of hard work Benz was promoted to chief meteorologist. Although he is on TV daily, Benz never thought he was cut out for life in the TV business until he interned with Studio One. “I love forecasting, I get to educate folks about what goes on in the

world around them and be a positive face in a person’s day!” Benz says. He adds the most memorable weather story he covered was when tornadoes touched down in Wis. last spring. “I was on air for over three hours straight without a break… We'll never know if the coverage we provided that day saved any lives, but it made us all feel good that perhaps we made some sort of difference!” These two alumni continued to put persistence into their professions while separated. The couple stayed committed to their each other and their occupations which lead to a some unexpected opportunities. “[In 2010] we knew the morning anchor at WJFW was leaving and I joked about applying... then just decided to do it,” says Kira. People say that building relationships take time, but this couple proves that finding a career close to your spouse can take even longer. “To sum up... we lived apart for about 3 years,” she adds. Now the residents of Rhinelander will see two Benz’s throughout their day. The dream team was finally reunited and now Matt and Kira work together at WJFW in Rhinelander, Wis. “I interviewed for the position in midMay and was offered the job a couple days later…and actually moved to Rhinelander and started working [in late July 2010],” she adds. Matt is the chief meteorologist and Kira is the morning news anchor. “Now, I know some people would advise against working with your spouse, but I take a much different view. I think it’s the best motivator there is…If I mess up, or produce something sub-par, Matt will know.” Kira says. 'It was not quite a fairy tale but 100% truth, a story of two hard working interns who met in their youth. It was in Studio One that these two met, it is a romance that the staff won’t soon forget. The moral of the tale is clear, work hard and you’ll gain what you deem dear.'

Creative adventure By: Richelle Ballenger

Most people only dream of climbing mountains, flying in a helicopter and being surrounded by professional athletes. But for Studio One alumnus Erik Fleischhacker, those dreams are everyday reality. During his time at Studio One, Fleischhacker worked on the news, programming, production and headline news teams. He worked in a variety of positions with the project including news reporter, photographer, camera operator, audio operator and technical director. “There was always something to learn,” says Fleischhacker. “My favorite part of being in Studio One was the sense of accomplishment and professional, fun atmosphere that surrounded the students…Studio One was the best thing I did for myself at UND. Being an intern prepared me for the professional world and helped me land a great job right out of college.” His excitement for learning new things and confidence in his abilities gave Fleischhacker an edge when applying for his current job working with the Versus and Fox Sports Networks. “I got this job on a hunch. I had watched one of the shows in the past and knew I could help make it better. So I looked up the executive producer and sent him a short e-mail describing why he should hire me. And he did.” Working as a videographer, Fleischhacker is often behind the lens, but not always in the most conventional of places.

“My daily routine at my current job varies. If I’m on a shoot I could be climbing a 12,000ft mountain, on a snowmobile while filming pro riders, or hanging out of a helicopter shooting 150mph boats in the ocean. Other days I’m producing or directing talent on a set for commercial work.” He also works with editing commercials and other projects for sponsors and clients. Fleischhacker used his first Studio One assignment as a stepping stone for success that led him straight to the Versus and Fox Sports Networks. The assignment that he remembers helped him succeed in his current position was working on a Studio One, “YourThoughts” segment. “No one would answer my questions and it was awkward. The next day I had to do it again to meet the deadline and I got it done. The assignment…taught me how to get random people comfortable on camera. I use those skills every shoot I go on,” he explains. With a job that requires Fleischhacker to be both adventurous and creative he admits it’s a group effort. “My favorite part of my job is the creative freedom I am fortunate enough to have, as well as my team. My colleagues are the best. We’re a group of guys that all bring something different to the table. That’s why we are successful; because without one of us, we’d be lacking.” He may be climbing a cliff or keeping up with speedboats but his Studio One experience, creativity and collaboration with colleagues always helps him create the perfect shot. “Every day I know that I am confident and prepared,” says Fleischhacker. It is that confidence and preparation that has him always ready for his next creative adventure.

Hallgren explains that she works to help improve physical function without a prescription. For many, some of the differences between chiropractic and medical care have led to the stigma that chiropractors aren’t doctors. Hallgren will describe what kind of training takes place for this group to effectively treat and prevent conditions. Also, football has been around since the late 1800s and practice is an important part of this game. But some teams may have a different routine now.

Alzheimer’s is a disabling disease that affects many individuals and their families. Ashley Magner a care consultant with a regional Alzheimer’s Association chapter will discuss the symptoms of the disease and share on recognizing indicators of this condition.

Also on the show, when it comes to giving birth and bringing a baby into the world, some people choose to skip the hospital. Birth attendant Rebekah Knapp says some mothers prefer to work with a midwife because it is a more personal experience. She works one-on-one with patients and answers questions about nutrition, pre-natal care and the birthing process. At-home births are all natural, so no drugs are used to help with pain or labor. Tune into Studio One this week to hear how one moment changed Knapp’s life and inspired her to work with little bundles of joy.

STUDIO ONE FEATURES SEGMENTS ON AN ART MUSIC COMPOSER AND HEALTHY EATING COSTS Award-winning news show airs on Channel 3 in Grand Forks GRAND FORKS, N.D. — Learn about unique music that is considered an art form and nutritious, cost-effective food options on the next edition of Studio One. Some define “Art Music” as an innovative way to create sound using a variety of sources. Michael Wittgraf, music department chair at the University of North Dakota, will discuss this process. “Art music has no regular beat, no regular chords, no melody, but it explores things such as flexibility, tone colors and unmeasured combination melodies,” he explains.
