The Communicator: Niki Maragos, Features Editor
April 21, 2016
Niki Maragos ‘16 is what you would call the video wizard of The CavChron. She’s been producing and editing videos since 2011. Outside of The CavChron, Maragos runs a popular
YouTube page, which she has shared to be one of her favorite hobbies.
She started off simple, using Microsoft Movie Maker, and has been advancing forward into more complex and professional editing programs throughout the years. For example, when Maragos acquired her first Macbook in 2012, she immediately switched to iMovie.
Now Maragos uses Final Cut Pro X, a program used by some professionals.
Maragos has been a huge part of The CavChron since 2014, with 15 articles now written and many video articles also up. This school year she has been put in charge of the features section as editor.
As for the CavChron, Maragos is leading the way with video. She likes to use video, especially for the paper. She explained how she thinks it’s a great tool to enhance the viewer’s experience.
In the past, she has learned that people would rather listen and watch than read. When asked about using the video she said “I really like that The CavChron is slowly integrating video into our site because I think it shows that we are really looking to stay ahead with the world of media and keep our journalists up to date.”
Maragos will soon be going off to High Point University to study journalism, hoping to make her outstanding and positive mark in the field of media. With the Media Fellowship she recently received, she will have almost everything she could need to make her dreams come true at her disposal.
She hopes that when she leaves The CavChron, the video aspect of the continually growing website will prosper and flourish without her expert touch.
