Hi, I'm Abigail Thompson from Chicago IL. I am a full time student at FullSail University obtaining my Master of Fine of Arts in Creative Writing. Entertainment
Business. I have a degree in Media Communication with a concentration in Audio and Video Engineering. Upon Graduating I hope to start a career in public relations.
In 2008 I got my first internship with Clear Channel Radio in Chicago WGCI. I interned with the mid-day host at the radio station creating and gathering content for her to talking about on air. I screened and edited calls using a multi-line phone. I also picked the throw back of the day using software called NexGen to do so. Along side radio I took an internship in Television and Music Business in 2008-2010 I interned for NBC working on the pre-production and wardrobe team for the Jerry Springer and Steve Wilko show. My internship in the Music Business was with Capitol Records as a college rep. In 2011 I went back WGCI but this time I was with the Music Director, where I wrote liners, position statements, conduct weekly music meetings ad create excel document to document the stations and it's competitors weekly spins using Media Base Reports.
I am a production assistant for The Judge Mathis Show and an event planner at my own company Catchy Events. My very first event was T.I.'s album release and listening party. My goal is to own my own production company. I love writing and planning. I am a born leader and in order to lead I must understand directions.
