Loghan moved from upstate New York to San Diego when he was a sophomore in high school. Instead of attending public school, he decided to finish high school through independent study, a decision which allowed him to start taking classes at Palomar College.
He quickly discovered Palomar’s broadcast journalism program and his new career path.
After three years at Palomar, Loghan has been a reporter, producer, shooter and/or editor for more than 60 live television shows, two of which he won Emmy’s for his role as producer.
He is currently working with CBS, in their high school division, creating video content for the web and television.
In his own words, why this trip is important:
“Most of my time spent in broadcast journalism has been tied to sports, while it’s a passion of mine, I have always wanted to focus on stories that impacted viewers on a deeper level. Members of the media have a rare opportunity to go into almost any place or situation on Earth, and tell their viewers what is actually going on. I truly believe that true media is a dying breed. The un-bias, honest reporting is basically gone and as a human population, our priorities are in the wrong places, and the media plays a big part in that.
Going to Nicaragua, for me, is the start of being able to start telling people the real story. I look forward to sharing the accomplishments of our team, but also capture the daily life of the citizens of Nicaragua. This being my first trip to a third world country, I know it will open my eyes and give me perspective on life that can be easily lost here in California. Above all, I know it will inspire me to travel to many other places around the world and tell their stories too."
