Description

El Chapo, Sean Penn, Roy Moore, Oh my! Citizen journalism is great until it runs amok and everyone starts screaming “fake news!” and in this episode we break down the evolution of today’s media environment to understand where we are and how we got here, and we found the perfect person to discuss that with, One America News Network’s Stephanie Hamill!

Stephanie Hamill currently serves as political reporter/commentator and producer of the “Daily Ledger Show”, on The One America News Network. This program is the only daily national Constitutionally conservative cable TV program that dissects and analyzes political news of the day. Stephanie joined OANN in June of 2013, a month before the official launch of the network.

Before joining OANN, Stephanie served as a general assignment reporter and anchor for KSWT NEWS 13, a CBS affiliate. KSWT served an area encompassing portions of two countries, including parts of two American states, Arizona and California, and two Mexican states, Baja California and Sonora. Stephanie covered breaking news and reported on location from various events. Some of the major stories she covered for the news station include: The capital murder trial for Preston Alton Strong, The Dome Valley Double Suicide, and The Figueroa Murder case. Stephanie spent a lot of her reporting days covering crime and the courts, but she also covered stories relating to immigration/border issues, drug cartels, Military, local and statewide politics, and education. Stephanie was also invited to do a ‘fly-along’ with the United States Thunderbirds on an F-16 fighter jet, at the Marine Corps Air Station in Yuma, AZ.

Prior to her career in broadcast Television, she worked on a statewide senate campaign in Arizona. Stephanie served as the assistant political director for the Rodney Glassman for U.S. campaign in 2010. Glassman won the Democratic nomination with 35% of the vote. In the general election, Glassman challenged, and lost to, Republican incumbent John McCain.

Stephanie graduated from the University of Arizona School of Broadcast Journalism. During her college years, she interned at a variety of locations to gain experience and knowledge that would help her become a better journalist. Her first internship was for the Vice Mayor of Tucson. She also took on a full time Senate internship with ‘Arizona Capital Television,’ at the State Capitol. Stephanie also interned at Arizona Public Media, where she worked on shows like Arizona Illustrated and Arizona connection.

​She was born and raised in Oro Valley, Arizona. She currently resides in San Diego, California.

  • Hello everyone! As you can see, my name is Adam and I am an aspiring journalist. I have always had a knack for the creativity and awe inspiring nature of wordsmith code. I understand the power and truth that comes with writing down words. After all, the pen is mightier than the sword. Originally, I wanted to go to law school. However, after seeing the insolvency of the system and the massive debt, I realized how much of a mistake that would be. I now want to pursue a career as a journalist because I care about the truth, something that most journalists, sadly enough, do not care about in today’s world. Here is the thing: I don’t want to go into student loan debt. I’ve realized that journalism school is pretty useless. Most (if not all) of what you learn can be obtained through real-world experience and books. As a matter of fact, I feel as though I have more experience than most journalism students. For one thing, I have my own column that I edit and operate. The column is connected to a watchdog group here in Vegas. I intern for a new journalism start-up company, and I was just hired as a part-time writer and blogger for a new Bitcoin start-up. Needless to say, I’ve gained a lot and I’m still in my early to mid 20s! Here is my question: what can I do to become a journalism without becoming part of the system? I know there are a ton of great writers and authors here, and I’m hoping one of them would be willing to mentor me. If you have any advice at all, please share it with me. I want to learn from as many individuals as I possibly can. For liberty, -Adam Sanacore
