TU has an awesome photographer. Don’t worry, I’m getting a haircut.

I’m a multimedia reporter currently working as editor-in-chief of The Towerlight, an independent, student-run newspaper and as a correspondent for USA TODAY College, where I’ve written about national politics, science and college culture.

I’m also working as a digital content producer for TEGNA, where I curate and produce online news for over 45 TV stations across the country.

In the past, I’ve had the opportunity to do some really, really cool stuff as a part of the Online News Association Student Newsroom (In Denver!) in Sept. 2016.

I’ve completed internships at Circa, where I did some original reporting, a lot of research help and a pretty good amount of aggregation reporting. At WMAR-TV, Baltimore’s ABC affiliate, I worked with the digital team, creating original stories for web and producing daily content. I’ve gotten to do some freelance stuff for them since then, too.

I’m also a freelancer for Baltimore City Paper, the alt-weekly owned by the Baltimore Sun Media Group. I was an intern over a winter semester, working to fact-check stories and maintain a weekly calendar. I’ve done environmental and political reporting for them.

I’m majoring in journalism & new media with a minor in environmental science and studies. My portfolio can be found here and my resume can be found here.

I can always be reached at cody.boteler@gmail.com or editor@thetowerlight.com.

I’m on twitter and LinkedIn. I also have  a Flickr, if you’re into that sort of thing.
