Madeline Finkel '12
Program Director at C-SPAN
After graduating from Quinnipiac University with a dual Bachelor's Degree in Public Relations and History in 2012, Madeline moved to Manhattan to begin a career in television. She was offered a job at Al Jazeera America shortly after, where she worked from the pre-network launch until the day it shut it's doors, three years later. Throughout her time with the network, she went from teleprompter operator to technical director. The company offered her the opportunity to join Al Jazeera Media Networks in DC, so she relocated to Washington in 2016. In 2018, a friend who had started working at Fox News presented the opportunity to be the lead Technical Director for Fox News Sunday, which she took in addition to her full-time position with AJMN. In early 2019, Madeline joined the team at C-SPAN as a staff Program Director, working in various roles for the three networks C-SPAN broadcasts. In January 2020, she was offered the chance to return home to the New York area and work for Fox News in NYC, where she is currently a freelance Technical Director.
