— Matthew Herchik of NBC4 WCMH-TV

COLUMBUS, OHIO, UNITED STATES, May 20, 2022 / — Six short years ago, Ohio Media School Alumnus Matthew Herchik was sitting at his commencement, excited to begin his professional journey. This past weekend Matthew returned to the Columbus campus as the keynote speaker, honored to inspire our graduates and share his journey and success in the media industry. A well-known MMJ at NBC4 WCMH-TV, Matt was thrilled to announce that he will join the weekend morning anchor team with Cynthia Hall, and together they are set to make their debut on May 21.

Matthew wanted our graduates to remember that he did not start his career in TV market #31. In his address, Matt talked about the realities of his humble beginnings in Zanesville, Ohio, Market #203 of 210.

“Ohio Media School means a lot to me because it’s a symbol to me of what I was able to accomplish while in school and what I knew I was going to be able to accomplish when I graduated. I knew I had skills, a great network, and confidence. While it was the end of a chapter, it was also the beginning of a journey. I knew that the possibilities were endless. And the same is true for you. There is so much out there that you can do. Be relentless in the pursuit of your dreams.”

For our graduates, these words will stay with them and resonate as they begin their career journey. This Ohio Media School Commencement had the largest graduating class in its history. Campus Director Rhonda Frazier presented The Class of 2022, which comprised talented graduates who completed diploma programs in Radio & TV Broadcasting, Digital Media Production, Audio Production, Film & Video Production, and Sports Broadcasting.
