Garnet Media Group is a collective partnership between The Daily Gamecock, SGTV, WUSC, and Garnet & Black to create collaborative multimedia content, including audio, visual and written components, for Student Media at the University of South Carolina. Garnet Media Group aims to provide additional in-depth training for students on emerging digital media and industry practices, while telling richly diverse stories about a variety of populations and topics in the Carolina community.
Our team is led by Luke Baker and George Wassel, who serve as co-multimedia directors. To join our team or share a story idea, email Luke and George at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the fall of 2016, a partnership between The Daily Gamecock, SGTV and WUSC (an early iteration of Garnet Media Group) created the “Behind the Spurs: Excited, But Nervous” podcast, which explored the orientation process for incoming freshman at the University of South Carolina. That podcast was awarded first place for “Best Podcast” by the College Media Association at its 2017 Pinnacle Awards.
