Hello! Thanks for visiting my website.
My name is Charles Kingsbury and I am currently attending the University of Florida. I am avidly pursuing a degree in Journalism with an expected graduation date of May, 2014. My work has been featured on numerous media outlets, including ESPN Radio and the Independent Alligator. I strive for perfection in all aspects of my work, ranging from sports journalism to news gathering and reporting.
Currently, I work as a Staff Writer for the Independent Alligator here in Gainesville, Fla., and cover Women's Gymnastics. In addition, I've covered both Men's and Women's Golf for the newspaper. I have also covered Florida football during my time as an ESPN Radio Intern. During my time covering sports at the University of Florida, I've realized that coverage and media access is extremely limited and I've done a great job of generating creative story ideas despite limited access. As a result, I feel I am perfect candidate for the sports journalism world simply because of my ambition and curiosity.
I also have a killer box jump of 56.5 inches which is a CrossFit record. In addition to my athleticism, I am a flag football coach for Alachua County Recreational Sports. Attached below is a YouTube video of myself performing my unofficial CrossFit box jump. I did, however, take an initial step. It's 56.5 inches, guys! Cut me some slack.
