Christine Wolski
Wolski and Begeny

   Christine Wolski, a 1991 graduate of the broadcastcommunications program, has won an Emmy Award from the National Capital Chesapeake Bay Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. 

            Wolski won for a magazine program that she co-produced with John Begeny for WETA public television in Washington, D.C., “Washington Cherry Blossoms: A Gift of Friendship.”

            Wolski has been a producer of on-air fundraising at WETA for nearly 14 years. Prior to that, she was executive director of the Titusville Family Center from 1997 to 1999 and worked as a reporter and producer for WTIV in Titusville from 1994 to 1999. Before that, she was the executive director of the Titusville Area United Way from 1994 to 1997.

            “Christine easily remains as one of the very top students I have ever taught,” said Jeff Guterman, associate professor and director of the broadcast communications program at Pitt-Bradford.

            “She started in the program during its first official year (1989) and definitely set the early standard.”

            Wolski said, “I credit any success I have achieved professionally to the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford and Professor Jeff Guterman for providing me a solid skill base to build on through my career.”

            Originally from the Titusville area, Wolski attended the University of Pittsburgh at Titusville before finishing her bachelor’s degree at Pitt-Bradford.
