REFERENCES

"Kimberly and I worked together for just over 3 years at PMCM TV. We were lucky to hire Kimberly right out of college and she immediately had a major impact on the organization. She started out as a marketing & programming assistant. Once PMCM TV started doing public affairs and news programming Kimberly took on any and every role she could to help. We were a small organization so she very quickly became an integral part of the production team. Her work ethic and positive spirit were unmatched. Not only did she become our most trusted producer, but she was a contributing reporter as well. It was amazing how much she was able to accomplish in a day. In high pressure situations she was always poised and calm. I can honestly say I never saw her rattled or upset. At all times she was a constant professional. Some of her responsibilities included producing three half-hour news programs, curating social media, writing and editing.

She was one of our most dependable and dedicated employees. I can't say enough about just how much she contributed to the success of 'Jersey Matters', 'The Delaware Way' and 'Another Thing'. I enjoyed every second of our time together. There's no doubt in my mind that one day I'll be able to tell people I knew her before she was a star."

-Jermaine High, Media Manager for PMCM-TV

 

"I have been viewing the news reports of Kimberly Kravitz for last three years. I have always found Kimberly to provide extremely clear and concise content with 100% objectivity. I know that she has a strict time constraints to deliver a news piece onto the air and yet she is always able to fit into that narrow window all the major broadcast journalistic facts to each story. We always get the “Who, What, Where, When and Why” in each of her news stories. Kimberly also has all the skills required of a Multi Media Journalist. She is able to produce and edit all story content with great skill, creativity and always meets her deadlines. Another aspect of Kimberly’s versatility is a complete understanding of Social Media. In this era of broadcast journalism, she effectively uses Facebook and Twitter to preview her stories, then posts the link to the story after it airs. Kimberly also is very skilled at engaging her growing base of Twitter and Facebook followers to share thoughts and opinions on her stories. Kimberly is extremely dedicated and professional. I know that she works tirelessly to advocate for her employer by promoting the station and their programming. Finally, Kimberly is a charismatic on air presence; she is a passionate story teller who loves broadcast journalism. Kimberly is extremely devoted and a valued member of her news team. I wish her continued success in her career and I know that she will always bring extremely dedication, passion, and integrity to all of her future endeavors."
