The 4:15

September 30, 2020 - 4:15pm

Meet four successful Cronkite alumni individually in a 15-minute window. The first half will focus on their current job and the second half will feature a question-and-answer session. It’s a great way to learn about a specific company, position and market and what it takes to get there—all in four separate 15-minute windows. What a fantastic and quick way to connect with a member of the Cronkite Nation! Oh, and by the way, it starts at 4:15 p.m. (Phoenix time)

4:30 - Chelsey Ballarte, NASA public affairs
4:45 - Gayle Bass, RightThisMinute host
