Catherine Darcy, SUSUtv Station Manager, expressed her feelings about the upcoming trip: “NaSTA is a fantastic opportunity for students in television to make friends, learn from each other and share in each others’ achievements. It’s a great time to celebrate everything that has been achieved at SUSUtv. I’m extremely proud of the hard work, ambition and passion everyone has at SUSUtv and I think NaSTA 2014 is going to be the best yet!”
