Malick Mercier

As an aspiring broadcast journalist, I am pursuing a degree in Journalism with minors in Spanish and the Honors Program. I participate in a variety of service projects, including Megaphone, mentoring students at South Hill Elementary School, digital content volunteer for Around the Worlds, and volunteer at the Connecticut Food Bank. Outside of this, I can be found working with ICTV as an anchor or reporter or with ESPN+ at Cornell University as a play-by-play commentator and sideline reporter. During COVID-19, I launched an Instagram TV show The Next Big Thing, an “infotainment” news show on my channel @thetaralynch, where I have interviewed guests like Liz Tigelaar ‘98, Jon Karl of ABC News, and Jade Pettyjohn from Little Fires Everywhere. I am the President of the Ithaca College Society of Professional Journalists, member of the Oracle Honor Society and Lambda Pi Eta Society. As an intern before COVID-19, I represented Ithaca College at the Iowa Caucus with CNN and at the Allstate Sugar Bowl with ESPN.
