From the Anchor Desk

Early in the week our broadcast journalism campers delivered a news update from our ComMedia studio. Here’s a sampling and a mash-up of their work from the anchor desk.

A State College Staple – Bryan Calhoun

Penn State is home to the largest university ice cream shop in the nation, the Berkey Creamery. This year it’s celebrating its 150th anniversary. With more than 15,000 cones sold this birthday weekend the Creamery continues to be a staple for students, alumni and townies. Bryan Calhoun found out what’s so special about this shop.

Sweet Success – Maddie Biertempfel

Everyone has a favorite…Death By Chocolate, Mint Chocolate Chip, Butter Pecan… Penn State’s Berkey Creamery offers about 150 flavors. The shop’s had quite a successful run and plans on bringing in new customers to try new flavors and who knows, maybe even eat that ice cream at a new location. This business continues too thrive here in Happy Valley. Maddie Biertempfel was there and has this story.

A typical U.S. Post Office has sterile white walls, wanted posters and stern faced clerks. As soon as you enter the post office on Penn State’s main campus, it is clear this is a very different environment. Instead of wanted posters, there are pictures and posters from the school, and instead of a stern-faced clerk, there is a warm smile to greet you.

This smile belongs to Mike Herr, who has been the clerk here for forty-seven years. He is affectionately called “Mike the Mailman.” He is well known among students and alumni all over the world.
