The Daily Illini

Masaki Sugimoto
I am a Broadcast Journalism major with a minor in EALC expected to graduate in May of 2017. Coming all the way from sunny San Diego, I started working as an On-Air Reporter in the sports section since fall of 2013 and served as sports video editor last year. When I'm not working at the Daily Illini as a reporter and video editor, I spend my time watching sports, being social, and answering the question “why did you come here from the west coast?”
