Former middle school television station manager Brandon Agee is pursuing a career on the “Today Show.” Although Agee became a TV station manager at age 13 to producing the morning announcements, that break quickly led a greater chance for him to join a major news show after he graduates from Virginia Commonwealth University.
Looking back, Agee describes himself as an outgoing student in seventh grade. For most seventh graders, the morning announcements are just a routine, but for Agee the morning announcements placed him on the path to becoming a journalist. Agee recalls signing up to do the morning announcements because a few of his friends were doing it, but after becoming involved, he found the job exciting. He was eventually promoted to station manager in eighth grade and received the Distinguished Service Award for his work.
