Remember Giacomo Luca? He’s the Roosevelt University prodigy who commuted four hours each way between Chicago and Lima, Ohio, where he anchored and produced weekend newscasts for NBC affiliate WLIO-TV.

Now just four weeks after he graduated, Luca, 21, already is moving up in the business: He’s just been hired as a bureau reporter for KFVS-TV, the CBS affiliate in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. It’s a 106-market jump — from the nation’s 187th market to the 81st.

“I believe that my new position with KFVS in a considerably larger market with a larger corporation will better help me advance toward my goal of becoming an international correspondent,” Luca told me.

While majoring in journalism as Roosevelt, the Cincinnati native held a morning news internship at Tribune Broadcasting WGN-Channel 9.
