Hi, I'm Edward Franco.

I am a student pursuing a career in broadcast journalism and video technical production.


Growing up in Miami, Florida, there was always something going on in the news that would keep me glued to the television. Throughout the years, my passion for broadcast journalism and TV production has grown tremendously and impeccably. 
I currently attend New York University pursuing a double major Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism and Social and Cultural Analysis with a concentration in broadcast news. I am currently working at NBC News NOW Top Story with Tom Llamas as an intern in New York. I previously worked at WKMG News 6 CBS Orlando as a news reporter intern through the Emma Bowen Foundation Fellowship program for two summers. I am also at Washington Square News, NYU's independent student newspaper, as a video reporter, being the former Video Director for the WSN Multimedia Desk. I have recorded and edited interviews and events that have been reported on and published through their online and social media outlets.

I completed my high school diploma at John A. Ferguson Senior High School in Southwest Miami-Dade. I was a student in my high school's TV production program, Ferguson's Broadcasting Network, or FBN for short. We broadcasted a daily live morning show called FBN News and a weekly recorded show called FALCON VISION to a student body of over 4,000 students in the largest school in Miami-Dade County. In this TV production program, we are taught all the necessary skills to be a part of this industry. 

As a 20-year-old student, I have attended several conventions and competitions in the journalism and media field. In July  2023, I was elected as the National Association of Hispanic Journalists' Student Board Representative. I am a member of NAHJ and the Society of Professional Journalists. I reported through The SPJ News at the October 2022 annual conference. In July 2021, I was awarded a Student Production Award by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Suncoast Chapter for my work on FBN's FALCON VISION during the COVID-19 Pandemic lockdowns. I am honored to have received several awards from the Student Television Network and the Florida Scholastic Press Association throughout high school for my work in news packages and video projects. The Florida Scholastic Press Association has also named me one of their 2021 Broadcast Journalist of the Year Finalists.

Being certified in Adobe Premiere Pro has taught me the essentials of video editing with industry-used software. I have also become certified in the Microsoft Office Suite, becoming a Microsoft Office Specialist and Microsoft Technology Associate in the Operating System Fundamentals, Security Fundamentals, and Networking Fundamentals branches. I am also currently preparing to certify in Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Lightroom, and Adobe InDesign. 

I have produced videos for organizations such as the Miami-Dade County Public School District & School Board, Miami-Dade Police Department, Santa's Enchanted Forest Holiday Amusement Park, and Embajadores Del Arte.

My interest in the field of broadcast journalism and the media is deeply rooted in my life as I am pursuing a career in this industry. Telling a story and informing the public through video and sound is my passion.
