Sam Bergum

As part of TEGNA’s first Producer-in-Residence program, I’ll be designing and producing a new newscast from scratch for ABC10 in Sacramento. I’m experimenting with ways to engage new audiences, tell stories and serve local communities with news.

At USC, I was an EP and director for Annenberg TV News. I led several special projects, including the 2018 Undergraduate Student Government Debates, and I produced two major multi-platform investigative stories on issues that hit close to campus.
