My name is Payton Boyd and I am a Journalism and Electronic Media student at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville. I am employed by E.W. Scripps as a marketing and promotions technician where I use demographic-specific public relations strategies to gain a greater following for the four radio stations we broadcast. Through my work in the communications industry, I have gained the utmost admiration and aptitude to work both alone and with others to solve real world problems through the use of exceptional communication practices.
