ABOUT

Hi, I’m Morgan Kornfeind! In May 2019, I’ll be graduating from Ithaca College with a B.A. in journalism and a minor in communications studies. My goal is to pursue a fulfilling career as an entertainment writer or broadcast personality for an independent, women-focused magazine or multi-media platform, where I can share my passion of telling good stories about lifestyle & culture, women rights and LGBTQ+ issues. Since my time studying abroad in Australia, my hunger for new culture has only flourished, driving my desire to seek out stories of new fashion, food, amusement and diverse women all around the globe. For three years, I have hosted celebrity gossip on the Ithaca College Television show “Entertainment Exclusive,” as well as write for the independent Buzzsaw Magazine and edit for Passion Project, an online, multimedia platform. Over the last two summers, I worked as a news intern at WFMZ- Channel 69 News and as an editorial intern for Lehigh Valley Style Magazine. I have also shadowed at KGW8 in Portland, Oregon, where I continued to cultivate my knowledge of the newsroom. Please browse my website, and let’s connect!
