It's official; I have my own desk at NBC. Summer 2012 will be spent as an intern for the department called Local Integrated Media. I'll be resizing photos, writing captions, and editing video for galleries that appear across 10 major markets across the country. I've only been there a few days, but already it's a step above my last internship with The Times. At NBC, my bosses treat interns as budding journalists with valuable ideas, not brainless bodies whose only purpose is to restock the beauty closet.
Well, I clicked on nbcnewyork.com this morning, and guess what's leading the entertainment tab... my gallery! A story I did on my first day is raking in rating results!
