To be honest, today was my first day as an intern at News 12 Long Island and it was great!
For the rest of the summer, I will be at News 12 twice a week as a reporter’s assistant. The reporter I have been assigned to is Danielle Campbell. Each day I’m in, I will assist her in research and reporting as well as go out into the field with her.
Today, Danielle’s story was on the “puppy mill bill,” which is a resolution that will regulate the sale of puppies from puppy mills. We saw all of the Suffolk County legislators vote to pass the resolution unanimously. Then we visited a puppy store and got to pet and hold some cute puppies.
After just one day, I can already tell that this is going to be a fun summer. It is so interesting and eye-opening to observe another reporter’s techniques and processes while on a story, especially one that is on deadline. I have already learned so much and I can’t wait to keep learning. I am excited to be working with Danielle because she is nice, funny and she is a great reporter. I am so grateful for this opportunity and I am looking forward to my next day, and the rest of the summer!
