“When Stephanie comes she might just change everything.”July 25th, 2012 at 2:39 pm by traceysmith under Interns
Week number seven has come and gone and I can not believe this internship is almost over. I am wrapping up my last two weeks here at WAVY working on the Hampton Roads Show.
I spent the first week sitting in the control room, where the commentary of the show is reality TV worthy. Between Susan and Kyle’s comments, a day didn’t go by where they hadn’t made me laugh. Being in the control room taught me again how ever-changing TV can be. Things were being added last minute, and the final details of the show were being created as the tapes were already rolling.
Quote of the week: “Red or white? …Vodka.” –Susan
I also go to go out on some shoots. I went with Craig and Chris to Atlantic Shores and Ocean Breeze. Craig let me interview some of the people that were going to be on the Hampton Roads Show talking about their favorite Olympic Memory. Through out the interviews I was reminded how much I love listening to people tell stories about their past. Everyone has a story to tell, you just have to be willing to listen. Our second stop of the day was Ocean Breeze, and unlike Chris, I was not dressed for the occasion. Chris advised me that a reporter should always be prepared, but I don’t think a bathing suit will ever be included in my “just in case” bag at work. I actually used to work at Ocean Breeze, and my old bosses had to do a double take to recognize me in a blazer and heels. Note to self, always pack a pair of flats.
Second Quote of the week: “If any one tells you that you can’t do something, tell them you know how to build a house. That’ll show ‘em.” – Eric Pyburn, who since my first day hasn’t missed an opportunity to make a joke towards me.
