eXposure helps HBCU & DC Students first hand tours at DC networks and media companies



HBCU Students are sometimes limited with resources about career opportunities in the Television business. It takes one day at a time to "Give back". It's my duty and responsibility to give back to those who need direction at VSU, This year together with the VSU Mass Comm Dept, Jennifer Williamson, eXposure was able to organize a DC Studio Tour for HBCU and DC students to visit and tour TV networks and Radio studios in the DC area....

VSU Student testimonies:
Hey my name is Tiffany from the Mass Comm Club and I want to thank for the Tour and I really enjoyed it thanks so much.

Hey Don,
This is Jessica Levene, I just wanted say thanks again for coordinating the tour day in DC with VSU. I learned so much from it and your wonderful advice. I feel like I have more insight and knowledge of the many positions within the Mass Communications field. It is also very encouraging to see alumni of VSU being successful and taking the time to help us get our careers started. So thank you so much for that.
Sincerely, Jessica Levene

Mr. Don Napoleon,
My name is Crystal Goode and I am one of the students who went on the tour to Washington D.C. I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for blessing us with the opportunity to tour XM Radio, Comcast Sportsnet, and Voices of America. I would have never thought to look into those places for careers if it had not been for you. Thanks again!
