This internship is truly what you make of it. It challenges you right from the beginning and you are forced to hit the ground running. There is no time to gradually ease into it, because you’re in the busiest market in the country. Within 15 minutes of my first day, I was already on a story trying to confirm the identities of two kids who had died in a snowmobile accident. I’ve been able to get on-camera experience for my demo each week I’ve been there. And I have also made amazing connections at this top-rated station in Toronto.

I was lucky enough to have an absolutely amazing experience interning at CTV Toronto. I

was able to do so many cool things. They let me fill in at the assignment desk, they even let me

interview my idol, Tessa Virtue one on one- she thought I was a reporter! 

 

I found that they really believed in me to do a lot of things and they assisted me in setting up a demo reel. I was able to work with awesome reporters, shadow them, and have them tell me about the industry and some tips to help me out. I was able to see really cool scenes, such as double shootings, all the way to weather updates. There was never really anything that they

didn’t let me do, they were always really encouraging and wanting to use my skills. Overall, it

was an amazing experience.
