About Us

PhotosHello, everyone!

My name is Aletha Rideout! And yes…that is my real last name. Just like it sounds… Ride – out. I am a graduate student at Full Sail University completing my Master’s Degree in New Media Journalism.

Why New Media Journalism you ask? Because just as you are watching me on this video via some electronic device, that is the way most of the world is beginning to gather their daily intake of news, entertainment, sports, weather, gossip and more! The way in which we gather information is quickly moving away from newspapers, radio, and television. So why not get a jump on it!

I am currently a Creative Services Producer for WXYZ Channel 7. A local news station in metro Detroit MI. I have been producing for nearly a decade. I free-lanced produced right out of college but I got my big producing break when I moved into the role of TV Producer for my church. It was a big assembly. Over 20-thousand people at the time.

My goal is to step from behind the camera to in front of it and getting my Master’s Degree in New Media Journalism is the springboard I believe I need to do so.

By connecting with me here on my website, you will be able to follow articles I write and produce with a strong emphasis on the city of Detroit and all it has to offer; the good, the bad and the GREAT! You’ll see stories about education, art, music and much more.
