Rubbing elbows with some of today’s hottest musicians is just another day at the office for Hopkins High School alum Julie Gurovitsch. The CBS News broadcast associate turned talent executive said her job requires a lot of concentration, prioritization, and professionalism, skills she learned as a Royal. Now, inspired by some of her favorite bands from the 2000s, she’s working with and booking on the Tonight Show.
