I had an enjoyable placement at CBC Radio’s As It Happens, however I wish I had done my internship in television.
My skill set and personality are a better fit for TV, but I did learn a lot in radio. My stories went to air on a daily basis, which was great! I’m grateful to have had the radio experience since I learned valuable skills like how to edit audio with Dalet, how to write an online article using Polopoly, and how to embed audio clips into it. I also improved my communication skills, and learned how to look for national stories.
This internship taught me how to use constructive criticism to constantly improve my work. The building is easy to reach by the PATH, and is close to the subway.
