Navigating an Unfamiliar Industry
This summer, I interned in the newsroom at WAMC, an affiliate of National Public Radio based in Albany, NY. I will talk about why I chose WAMC despite having no background in radio; what working in a newsroom was like; and how this experience prepared me to pitch, write, and produce my own news story. My presentation also will describe the application and interview process (which did include a quiz!), for students worried about planning their own internship.
