During the summers of 2012 and 2013 I had the privilege of interning with WHYY, the public radio division of NPR in my home city of Philadelphia, PA. I began as an FM news intern responsible for going out to events around the city and interviewing people before going back to the office and writing short cut scripts, often accompanied by sound bytes I constructed, for news anchors to read later. I later moved on to more production work and assisted with NewsWorks Tonight, a nightly radio show, including traveling to the Jersey shore in July 2013 to assist with a show broadcast live from Beach Haven.
While most of the work I did for WHYY and NewsWorks was aired the next day and not usually stored, a few of my pieces made it to the show’s website, newsworks.org. In addition, below is one cut script that was aired on WHYY, written and read by myself.
