Alumn Goes Viral

Sometimes, opening email is a pure joy … Jon-Michael Sullivan, a 2010 graduate of our program at the University of Georgia’s Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication and now on staff at the Augusta Chronicle, sent me a note about a video he posted in September telling the story of a 70 year old body builder. Normally, I’d embed the video, but you need to go look at it on YouTube to see the number of plays – currently, 1,274,532.

Yes, you read that right – he’s approaching 1.3 MILLION views.

For a JOURNALISM piece.

It can happen.

The video was apparently shared on Reddit – still, wicked cool.

Of course, I have to ask, why is it linked to YouTube and not the Chronicle’s site?
