The Washington Journalism and Media Conference


Junior Faculty Advisor

Nick DeLuca is a rising junior at Penn State University studying Broadcast Journalism with a minor in Music Performance.  Originally from Pittsburgh, he attended WJMC in 2019 and is thrilled to return to the conference as a Junior Faculty Advisor and share his knowledge with the other correspondents. Since attending the conference, Nick has worked as a Field Reporter for Penn State Network News, held the Staff Writer position for an on-campus political chapter, worked as an Entertainment Reporter for his high school’s newspaper, volunteered for numerous campaigns for candidates running for various levels of office, and has enjoyed making connections with journalists and employers from across the country. Outside of the classroom, Nick is a trumpet player in the Penn State Blue Band, an Eagle Scout, and works as the Assistant Manager and Head Lifeguard at a private swim club in the Pittsburgh area. Nick’s goal is to work as a News Anchor in a major American city while still having music play a major role in his life.
