Ellen Mauro: What Others Say

Kimothy Walker Anchor, Producer, Reporter CTV Ottawa 1-613-224-1313 kimothy.walker@bellmedia.ca

Not only did Ellen have excellent news judgment but she proved to be a first class researcher. She was well-organized, worked very hard and cheerfully did every task she was assigned. She has a pleasant, outgoing personality and was a pleasure to work with. Ellen is a very talented young lady and should go far in this business. She has a real passion for news and a genuine determination to succeed: the ideal

combination. -Ann MacMillan, CBC London Bureau Chief 020 7412 9200 ann.macmillan@cbc.ca From day one, she stood out as being among the best interns ever to come through this office. Her efficiency, tenacity and graciousness are a combination rarely seen in such a young journalist. I was amazed just watching her work, and thrilled at the quality of material she came back with. She handled everything we gave her with a calm urgency and a drive to do everything to an exceptionally high standard. Any newsroom would be lucky to have Ellen. Shes among the brightest weve seen here in London and I would always want her on my team. -Erin Boudreau, CBC London Bureau Senior Producer 020 7412 9200 erin.boudreau@cbc.ca Ellen is one of the best students we have had at the school in recent years. She took a course in television from me. She was a natural, not only on-camera but behind the scenes. She writes very well and has a pleasant and congenial personality. It is extremely difficult in the course to get a grade higher than A- but I gave Ellen an A+ because she was quite simply a remarkable student. I also taught her in a course on international reporting. It was through this course that I realized the intellectual depth that Ellen had in addition to her journalistic skills. It was in this course that I also discovered her passion for news beyond our borders I am certain that if you take on, youll be happy you did. -Paul Adams, former CBC Middle East correspondent, now a journalism instructor at Carleton University 1-613-520-2600 ext. 8085 paul_adams@carleton.ca During her time as a student at Carleton Universitys School of Journalism, Ms. Mauro earned the highest grades I have ever seen on an undergraduate students transcript in my 20 years of teaching hereI will always remember Ms. Mauro as one of the best writers I have ever encountered among the students I have taught at Carleton. She wrote with a grace and style that is rare for someone barely 20 years old at the time. I remember sending her a note at the end of the term saying I hope she never stops writing and that one day someone, somewhere pays her well for it. -Mary McGuire, former CBC Radio reporter now a journalism instructor at Carleton University 1-613-520-2600 ext. 7438 mary_mcguire@carleton.ca
