HEY THERE VIEWER, THIS IS AJA WITT. AND I’M PROUD TO SAY THAT I’M COMING TO THE END OF MY TIME HERE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF IOWA’S JOURNALISM SCHOOL. BUT ALONG THE WAY, I’VE PICKED UP SOME SKILLS IN WEB AND TELEVISION WRITING, I’VE PRODUCED MY OWN 15 MINUTE NEWSCAST, AND I’VE COVERED A NEWS CONFERENCE.

I ALSO COMPLETED MY FIRST EVER LIVE SHOT, I’VE DONE A FEW RADIO PROGRAMS, AND I COVERED THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION. SO HERE’S MY RESUME REEL. I REALLY HOPE THAT YOU ENJOY IT. AND I HOPE YOU CONSIDER ME FOR A POSITION AT YOUR NEWS STATION.

We are less than a week away from the conclusion to the 2016 presidential election between Republican candidate Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. Donald Trump and Governor Mike Pence recently visited Cedar Rapids, and now, it’s time for the Democrats. Daily Iowan TV reporter, Ay-zhuh Wit was in Iowa City covering a Clinton, Kaine rally that featured Senator Bernie Sanders.

Take/Pkg

Hundreds of Iowa City residents turned out Friday afternoon to hear Democratic Senator, Bernie Sanders speak at College Green park. Sanders returned to Iowa earlier this week and is advocating on behalf of 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton. In Iowa City, known for being a college town, Sanders urged residents, young and old, to get out and vote.

Sot: Bernie Sanders, Democratic Senator

Too many people in Iowa, and Vermont, and throughout this country, people like Tom Harkin, have put their lives on the line to defend American democracy. And we will not allow the cult brothers and a handful of other billionaires to convert this country into an oligarchy. Ain’t gonna happen.

Take/Pkg

This ‘Get-out-the-vote’ rally played host to a variety of supporters and protesters. Those against the North Dakota pipeline, citizens for Donald Trump and Green Party presidential nominee Dr. Jill Stine, and one known Iowa city resident; an avid supporter of both Sanders and Clinton.

Reporter on cam: Aja Witt, @ajarenata_witt

Following today’s rally in Iowa City, Senator Sanders will be headed to the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar falls, and Iowa State in Ames. The push to attract young voters is in full swing as this year’s election winds to a close. This is Aja Witt, Daily Iowan TV.

IN THE UNITED STATES, SIXTY-THREE PERCENT OF AMERICANS SAY THEY’VE BOUGHT ORGANIC FOODS, OR BEVERAGES AT LEAST ONCE. THIRTY PERCENT OF THOSE AMERICANS ARE MILLENNIALS, OR THOSE AGED EIGHTEEN TO THIRTY-FOUR, WHO HAVE HELPED THE ORGANIC MARKET GROW NEARLY NINE PERCENT SINCE TWO-THOUSAND AND ELEVEN. DAILY IOWAN TV REPORTER, AY-ZHUH WIT IS IN IOWA CITY WITH MORE ON THIS.

TAKE/PKG

IN TWO-THOUSAND AND SIXTEEN, MORE AMERICANS ARE CHOOSING TO SHOP FOR ORGANIC, LOCALLY GROWN PRODUCTS. THIS FOOD IS PRIMARILY FREE FROM CHEMICAL PESTICIDES AND SYNTHETIC INGREDIENTS, MAKING ORGANIC FOOD A LOT HEALTHIER FOR YOU.

SOT: GENIE MAYBANKS, NEWPI MARKETING COORDINATOR

THERE’S A CERTAIN RIPENESS, FRESHNESS FACTOR TO ORGANIC FOODS THAT ARE PICKED THE SAME DAY AS YOU CONSUME THEM. THEY TASTE BETTER, AND THEY TEND TO HAVE HIGHER VITAMIN AND MINERAL QUALITIES TO THEM.

TAKE/PKG

BECAUSE ORGANIC FOOD TAKES MORE TIME AND EFFORT TO PRODUCE, IT IS TRADITIONALLY MORE EXPENSIVE THAN CONVENTIONAL FOOD.

AND UNLIKE, MANY FAST FOOD RESTAURANTS THAT HAVE SURPRISINGLY BEGAN ACCEPTING FOOD STAMPS, MOST ORGANIC GROCERY STORES STILL DON’T. ALONG WITH THE LACK OF ORGANIC GROCERY STORES IN LOWER INCOME NEIGHBORHOODS, THIS CAN LIMIT WHO IS ABLE TO EAT HEALTHY.

AS THE AVAILABILITY OF ORGANIC FOOD INCREASES, WE WILL LIKELY SEE A DECREASE IN ITS PRICES.

SOT: (MAYBANKS)

AS MORE ORGANIC IS AVAILABLE, AND THERE’S MORE DEMAND FOR IT, THE EFFICIENCIES ARE GOING TO START HELPING TO LEVEL THAT PLAYING FIELD.

TAKE/PKG

IN IOWA CITY, THERE ARE CURRENTLY FOUR ORGANIC GROCERY STORES. ONE OFFERS RESTAURANT QUALITY FOOD AND CATERING AT REASONABLE PRICES.

REPORTER ON CAM: AJA WITT, @ajarenata_witt

THE UNIVERSITY OF IOWA WILL BE HOSTING IT’S SIXTEENTH ANNUAL ORGANIC CONFERENCE, NOVEMBER THIRTEENTH THROUGH THE FOURTEENTH. THIS IS A JOINT VENTURE WITH IOWA STATES AND A CHANCE FOR PRODUCERS AND EXPERTS, FROM AROUND THE COUNTRY, TO SHARE THEIR TIPS ON ORGANIC PRODUCING AND METHODS OF ORGANIC OPERATIONS.

HIGH LEVELS OF NITRATE IN DRINKING WATER HAS BEEN LINKED TO CERTAIN CANCERS AND BIRTH DEFECTS. IN FARMING COMMUNITIES, PEOPLE ARE AT A GREATER RISK OF NITRATE WATER CONTAMINATION. HAWK NEWS TV REPORTER, AY-ZHUH WIT IS IN IOWA CITY TO FIND OUT WHAT THEY ARE DOING TO IMPROVE THEIR WATER QUALITY.

TAKE/PKG

THE IOWA CITY WATER SYSTEM CONSISTS OF 300 MILES OF SEWER PIPING WHICH DELIVERS 17 MILLION GALLONS OF WATER TO RESIDENTS EVERYDAY.

BEFORE THAT WATER REACHES YOUR FAUCET, IT IS STABILIZED, FILTERED, AND FLUORIDATED. BUT RECENTLY, SOIL TURNOVER, HEAVY RAINS, AND FARM FIELD RUNOFF HAS LED TO IOWA CITY NITRATE LEVELS THAT ARE HIGHER THAN EVER.

SOT: Joe Bolkcom, Iowa Senator

WEATHER CONDITIONS AND HOW MUCH RAINFALL WE HAVE, OR DON’T HAVE, HAS AN IMPACT ON HOW MUCH NITRATE GETS WASHED OFF OUR LANDS INTO THE RIVERS OF THE STATE. WHEN IT’S DRY WE DON’T HAVE A LOT OF NITRATE RUNOFF. WHEN IT GETS WET IT TENDS TO FLUSH THAT NITRATE INTO THE RIVERS.

IN LIGHT OF THE RECENT PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, COMMUNITIES AND CAMPUSES ACROSS THE UNITED STATES HAVE FELT DIVIDED. AT THE UNIVERSITY OF IOWA, THE HOME TO NUMEROUS ANTI-HATE RALLIES, STUDENTS ARE TURNING TO ONE GREAT UNITER. DAILY IOWAN TV REPORTER, AY-ZHUH WIT WAS ON CAMPUS, AND HAS MORE ON SCHOOL SPIRIT.

TAKE/PKG

AT THE UNIVERSITY OF IOWA, ONE SIMPLE YET EFFECTIVE CONCEPT CAN BECOME THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BEING AT SCHOOL, AND BEING AT OUR SCHOOL. HAWKEYE PRIDE ALLOWS STUDENTS TO BECOME A PART OF SOMETHING DIFFERENT AND EXCITING. TO SUPPORT AND PROMOTE THEIR FELLOW CLASSMATES, AND THEIR TEAM.

WEARING YOUR FAVORITE HAWKEYE GEAR AROUND CAMPUS CREATES A BOND BETWEEN IOWA CITY RESIDENTS, UI FACULTY, AND FELLOW STUDENTS. AND FOR SOME STUDENTS, IT’S SOMEWHAT NOSTALGIC.

SOT: KEELY KINSELLA, UI FRESHMAN

I’VE ALWAYS KNOWN THE HAWKEYES, SO IT I WEAR THEIR GEAR, I FEEL LIKE I’M A PART OF THEM. BLACK AND GOLD, THOSE WERE MY HIGH SCHOOL COLORS. PLUS, I JUST FEEL THE PRIDE FOR HAWKEYES.

TAKE/PKG

HERE ON CAMPUS, THAT PRIDE’S NOT DIFFICULT TO OBTAIN. WITH HAWKS CALENDARS, BUTTONS, AND THREE ON-CAMPUS SHOPS, THERE’S NO SHORTAGE OF SCHOOL SPIRIT.

PARTICULARLY AROUND GAMES DAYS, THESE HAWK SHOPS SEE A TON OF STUDENTS BUYING GEAR TO SUPPORT THEIR TEAM.

SOT: ZACH OSTENDORF, HAWK SHOP STUDENT MANAGER

WE SEE A LOT OF PEOPLE COMING IN JUST TRYING TO GET THEIR HAWKEYE STUFF AND JUST TRYING TO SUPPORT THE TEAM FOR THE FOLLOWING GAME.

REPORTER ON CAM: AJA WITT, @ajarenata_witt

SCHOOL SPIRIT IS SAID TO BE ONE OF THE MOST DEFINING ASPECTS OF CAMPUS CULTURE. HERE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF IOWA, MORE THAN 70,000 HAWKEYE FANS GATHER ON GAME DAYS, AND TENS OF THOUSANDS OF STUDENTS WEAR THEIR FAVORITE HAWKEYE GEAR AROUND CAMPUS. THIS SPIRIT CAN LEAD TO AN INCREASED OVERALL COLLEGE EXPERIENCE, AND CREATE MEMORIES THAT WILL CARRY YOU THROUGH TO GRADUATION. THIS IS AJA WITT, DAILY IOWAN TV.

Affordable Housing VOSOT

ANCHOR ON CAM

THE IOWA CITY CITY COUNCIL DISCUSSED AN AFFORDABLE HOUSING ACTION PLAN TUESDAY NIGHT. THE PLAN IS SAID TO EXEMPT THE RIVERFRONT CROSSING DISTRICT, DOWNTOWN, AND THE UNIVERSITY OF IOWA AREA.

THE HOPE IS TO INCREASE AFFORDABLE HOUSING IN MARGINALIZED AREAS OF THE CITY. WHILE COUNCILMAN KINGSLEY BOTCHWAY SUPPORTS THE HOUSING ACTION PLAN, HE DOES NOT SUPPORT ITS EXEMPTIONS.

“I DO HAVE ISSUES WITH US NOT NECESSARILY INCORPORATING THE DOWNTOWN UNIVERSITY AREAS. I THINK THAT OUR UNIVERSITY LADIES ON JACOB TALKED ABOUT, VERY, VERY CANDIDLY AND EXPLICITLY ABOUT, THE FACT THAT STUDENTS HAVE SOME OF THE SIMILAR ISSUES, AS FAR AS, WANTING OR NEEDING AFFORDABLE HOUSING. THAT’S WHY YOU SEE, YOU KNOW, FOUR, FIVE, SIX OCCUPANCY APARTMENTS OR HOMES.”

THE AVERAGE UNIVERSITY OF IOWA STUDENT SPENDS MORE ON ROOM AND BOARD THAN TUITION AND FEES. WHILE THIS IS PRIMARILY A UNIVERSITY ISSUE, THE IOWA CITY COUNCIL AND BOTCHWAY AGREE IT WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE FOR THE U OF I TO TACKLE THIS PROBLEM WTHOUT THE HELP OF THE CITY.

“IOWA CITY WOULDN’T BE A CITY WITHOUT THE UNIVERSITY, AND SO, WE’RE INDEPENDENT, OR INTERDEPENDENT OF EACH OTHER. AND SO, WE HAVE TO HAVE MORE CONNECTED CONVERSATION.”
