Danielle Washington – Bittersweet

wtvm

Over the course of this summer I have had the best time of my life. This internship had showed me so much about the News Business and I am truly grateful to have gotten the opportunity to intern at the number one newsstation in Columbus Georgia. There is no doubt in my mind that I have gained so much more as a Communications major and person by being allowed to intern with WTVM.

The team has been outstanding in lending so much wisdom to me as I got the opportunity to interview some legendary people of the station. Men such as Chuck Leonard, Paul Therrien, and Mr. Eddie Bland taught me so much about the history of WTVM. While the oustanding report Mr.Curtis McCloud took me under his wing this summer and he definitely showed me how to be a reporter. Word can not express my gratitude to the entire staff of WTVM for showing me what it is like to be a part of a newsstation. I also am forever indebted to Mr. Chris Robinson for allowing the opportunity to intern this summer.  I look forward to particapting in the first ever intern newscast this Saturday and I am very excited to be a part of it.

Live on Set

I have seen it all and loved every moment of sitting in the newsroom and also being live in the field. The city of Columbus will always depend upon WTVM for the news it can count on and WTVM will continue to deliver with style and grace as it had been doing for the past six decades. I have cherished this internship and I will take the skills I have formed with me in the future.
