Ever wanted to see what our newsroom looks like?
OK, so maybe that’s not at the top of your “bucket list,” but you can see it anyway in a story that was aired last week on PBS’s “Nightly Business Report” featuring one of our summer interns, Felix Rivera.
The PBS story was on whether companies take advantage of interns and run afoul of the law by not paying them. Rivera told PBS he had a great experience interning for CNS and didn’t mind not being paid because the experience he gained is worth far more than money. He interned with CNS through the Fund for American Studies, which runs several programs for college students and places journalism students with news organizations for the summer.
Here’s the link to the PBS program. Hover your cursor over the video and drag the timeline bar to approximately 18:27. Our intern, who is headed back to Alaska Pacific University in Anchorage, Alaska, is interviewed at both the beginning and the end of the three-minute story.
