My experience as a technical intern at Global News Toronto was an invaluable first step into my broadcast career. Being in a highly automated control room for local and national networks, I was able to shadow and assist in various positions including producing, directing, managing remotes (reporters in the field), operating robo-cams and mixing audio during live shows.
Although my role was mostly technical, I was also able to contribute to editorial meetings and chase expert voices for stories. I could not have imagined a more well-rounded internship experience. I made many contacts and was offered the opportunity to potentially freelance for them after my internship.
