Robin Roberts, Keith Olbermann and Lil Yachty React to College Student’s Demo Reel

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

David Schiele didn’t know what would happen when he posted his reel over the weekend to Twitter, and asked for a retweet.

The Georgia State University senior had put the reel out into the Twitterers, hoping it would help him land a job. He didn’t expect the tweet to receive 37,000 retweets in just a couple days, and get noticed by some of broadcasting’s most legendary anchors and sports reporters.

Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts took notice and send Schiele a personal note on Twitter. “David…you’ve got what it takes! 🙌🏽 Congrats on your college degree…proud of you. Be patient and persistent in reaching your goals. Wishing you the absolute best. Blessings..RR.”


So did Keith Olbermann:

“Nice! Solid, yet original. Already forwarded to people who actually hire people. And if the job-getting process gets you down remember you only need one “yes” and you get to ask as many times as you want (I sent out 100 tapes in 1979). Good luck.”

Even rapper Lil Yachty caught a glimpse. “I got you,” he wrote.

TVSpy reached out to Schiele. He said a handful of news directors asked for his reel, but he has not received any offers yet.
