My name is Jason Laplow and I am a second-year student at Michigan State University, seeking a degree in journalism with a double minor in sports journalism and broadcasting.
I grew up in Midland, Michigan and attended H.H. Dow High School, where I gained experience as a scholastic journalist for all four years, having been the managing sports editor and eventually editor-in-chief of my high school newspaper, Update, as well as the leader of the video communications club from my freshman year on. I helped to co-found my high school's broadcast program, Bolt Media, and was given the title of executive producer for my senior year, its first year in existence.
In college, I have become involved with Spartan Vision/B1G+ and Spartan Sports Report, where I have honed my skills even further. I am very passionate about journalism, specifically relating to sports, and hope to someday cover my favorite sport, baseball, as an on-air talent. I'm also very interested in technology and always seek to be on the cutting edge of knowledge when it comes to consumer electronics.
Overall, I love being challenged and being given opportunities where I know that I can show the value of my work.
