Ross Nederhoff Recognized as a Student Standout in Point TV

PLNU sophomore Ross Nederhoff was recently recognized as Point TV’s first ever student standout, a title given to students who demonstrate hard work, commitment and overall dedication to Point TV projects and productions.

“It feels really great to be the first standout student,” said Nederhoff. “I was honestly pretty surprised to be awarded it the first time around since there are so many amazing individuals working with me this semester that are equally as deserving.”

The broadcast journalism major has devoted much of his time learning different positions within Point TV. His efforts include serving as Technical Director (TD) for Coastline News, creating graphics for Sea Lions basketball and co-writing and producing a commercial for Point Break cafe. While his skill set continues to expand, Nederhoff says that his most rewarding yet challenging position has been serving as technical director.

“I remember last year watching the TD and hoping that I would be able to do the same thing in the near future, and here I am,” said Nederhoff. “It is super fun and I genuinely enjoy every time I am able to work the switcher. I like a challenge, and this job is certainly that.”

After recognizing the substantial amount of time and effort that Nederhoff was devoting, Erich Rau, Point TV’s station manager, said that it wasn’t only his hard work, but his ability to work well with others that earned him this title. 

“Ross is incredibly hardworking, honest, and inquisitive,” said Rau.  “When he says he'll do a job, I know I can expect him to do it to his fullest ability. He isn't afraid to ask questions about his role, and he is excellent at communicating with myself and the other crew and talent he works with.”

Nederhoff hopes to one day become a news anchor or a television/host personality. 

Congratulations to Ross Nederhoff, the Student Standout of February!
