I am currently in the process of preparing for my summer internship with WFAA-TV 8 in Dallas, Texas.
After a series of interviews, I was selected for a paid internship at the ABC affiliate, which has a long-standing reputation as one of the top television stations in the country.
I will be working under David Schechter, a senior reporter in their news room. He previously worked at WCCO in Minneapolis specializing in investigative reporting. He is also the winner of 13 regional Emmy awards. Schechter should be a worthy mentor.
I hope to learn as much as I can from the team at WFAA and gain a better understanding of what it takes to thrive in a large-market operation.
I’ll be posting updates each day, so stay “connected” to the blog, starting June 4th.
