Student Media Advisor: Jake Sherlock

Jake Sherlock likes his music loud, his wrestling professional and his journalism available on-demand. He enjoys breaking news tweets, long reads, investigative reports, satirical spins, thoughtful columnists and hot sports takes.

Sherlock joined Rocky Mountain Student Media as the student media adviser in September of 2019. His primary duties are to help RMSMC students produce quality journalism that informs and enlights the CSU and Fort Collins communities. His secondary duties are to make sure the candy bowl is always filled. He’s much better at his primary duty than his secondary.

He holds a bachelor’s in journalism and a master’s in communications from the University of Wyoming. Sherlock was the editor of his college newspaper and held a variety of other writing, editing and photography positions within student media. He also spent more than 10 years working with student media at the Missouri School of Journalism and at Laramie County Community College.

Outside of student media, Sherlock has experience in print and web design, copy editing, public relations, marketing, reporting, sports writing and pizza delivery, but he’s really out of practice on the pizza thing.
