Spotlight On….Ceci Camm

Medfield TV helped me be as successful as possible, and I am so grateful for everything they helped me learn and accomplish.

In the Summer of 2022, Medfield High School’s Athletic Director, Eric Scott, urged Ceci Camm to get involved with Medfield TV. As the announcer for MHS’s football games, she had a passion for sports broadcasting and Scott thought Medfield TV would be a good place to cultivate that passion into something meaningful. Ceci quickly became a volunteer with us and co-created, -produced, and -hosted Warrior Sports Talk, a news program that covers all things Medfield sports. “I love talking about sports,” she explained, “I thought it would be a great idea to start Warrior Sports Talk so that we could share with the community how Medfield sports are doing.” She wanted to “interview some of the athletes so the audience could really get a glimpse into what it’s like to be a part of the team atmosphere.”

Ceci said Medfield TV was instrumental in teaching her the essentials of media production. “The biggest one was how to edit,” she explained. “Medfield TV also gave me great experience on what the behind the scenes looks like before your shoot.” She said Medfield TV served as a great supplement to her high school education when it came to sports journalism. “Medfield TV … taught me so many things about the career I want to pursue that I did not learn in any high school class I took.”

After a year with us at Medfield TV, she said she “100% saw an improvement” in her skills. “In the beginning when Warrior Sports Talk first started,” she recalled,  “Curran and Emily, the other two co-hosts and I – we stayed for hours editing, filming, and just trying to learn the ropes, but by the end of the school year we became more efficient. I also felt like all of our on-camera presence … improved immensely.”

Now a freshman at Ithaca College with a major in Sports Media, Ceci is continuing her journey into media production and she said her experience here has given her a headstart on what she needs to know – “Medfield TV helped me build up my portfolio so much. … I was able to put all the things I learned at Medfield TV in my (college) applications,” she said. The wide array of media knowledge she obtained from us was a main reason why she “was able to get into some of the top sports media programs in the country.”

Warrior Sports Talk was just the first of many shows Ceci has already had a hand in, all in such a short time. “At Ithaca college I am a part of two TV shows and the radio station on campus,” she said, without “Medfield TV, and especially having the on-camera experience, I don’t think I would have as much confidence to participate in the things I am a part of today.” Ceci explained the culture at Ithaca is quite competitive – she had to audition to get her parts on these shows. “Going into the audition, I wasn’t as nervous as I thought I was going to be. I just performed as I always did for Warriors Sports Talk and I was able to get the position of Social Media Host on one show and Assistant Producer on the other. … Medfield TV definitely gave me a leg up … and it also gave me foundational skills that I still use today and will use for the rest of my life. Medfield TV helped me be as successful as possible, and I am so grateful for everything they helped me learn and accomplish.”
