My name is Alexander Popichak and I’m a journalist, editor, producer and ten thousand other things.
I’m currently a broadcast production and media management major with a journalism minor at Point Park University in Pittsburgh and serve as Editor-in-Chief for the on campus newspaper, the Point Park Globe. I am the proud creator/host/producer of WPPJ‘s On the Horizon, a current events-based variety talk show and serve on the staff of WPPJ. I am also a co-executive producer for U-View Television’s Point Park NewsNight, a news show that delves into topics through long form audiovisual pieces in a nightly news-style live-to-tape production.
I’m currently a newsroom production assistant at 90.5 WESA, Pittsburgh’s NPR Station. I work part-time during the school year at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette as a high school sports stringer. In 2016, I was an editorial intern at the aggregate trending news website run by Trib Total Media’s affiliate 535media upgruv. Think localized buzzfeed and you’re halfway there.
My photographic and journalistic work has been published with the Point Park Globe, U-View, WESA, upgruv, The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Trib Total Media’s Signal Item and IN Community Magazines. If you’re interested in my full credentials, visit the “contact/resume” page.
Feel free to look around! Consider this website my portfolio that’s (mostly) up to date – my favorite work is here.
