On Tuesday, October 23 Dan Hunt, MFA, Assistant Professor of Communication and Media Arts, brought his fall Storytelling Across Media class on a field trip to Good Morning America (GMA).

The group was treated to VIP status thanks to MMC alumna and current producer at GMA, Taylor Behrendt ’05, enjoying an exclusive behind the scenes look at how live national television programs are created. Some students even stayed for a taping of Michael Strahan’s show ‘Strahan, Sara, and KiKi,’ where they got even more screen time on tv and left with fancy gift bags to enjoy.

We always love seeing our graduates doing what they love - thank you to Taylor, Cezanne, and Tess for their hospitality!
