MANHATTAN -- David Kaufman, a junior in electronic media from Topeka, is working this summer as a video podcaster for Kansas State University's news services.

Kaufman will continue media relations' effort to create short videos about K-State experts, students and traditions. Previous topics have included pet health advice, a tour of the Beach Museum of Art and a glimpse at the making of a K-State tradition, Call Hall ice cream.

One of Kaufman's first projects is to update a short video about K-State's Veterinary Diagnostics Laboratory.

The videos, in QuickTime format, can be watched and downloaded for both viewing and sharing at

Kaufman is a 2006 graduate of Topeka West High School. He is the son of Dean and Carol Kaufman, Topeka.

At K-State, Kaufman also works for the Educational Communications Center. His projects have included editing "Wildcat Watch," a campus update show made by current and former K-State students.

He also has worked with the video board crew for K-State football and basketball games and for 94.5 Country's Country Stampede in 2008 and 2009. He will begin working on a video for the United Way of Riley County. In addition, Kaufman was K-State student representative for ESPNU Campus Connection Week this spring.

Kaufman's career goals include moving to the West Coast to work for a production company editing movie trailers or music videos, or working for Fuel TV, an action sports television network. Kaufman also hopes to create promotional videos and a Web site for FEO T-shirt Company of Topeka, which he co-owns.
