Katherine Graubard is a 4th year telecommunications and marketing student. She will be serving as the InterChapter Relations Chair this fall. She is currently interning at NBC6 in Miami, Florida. A typical day for Katherine can include attending meetings, working with some of the best in the news business, controlling the speed of the script through the prompter, shadowing street reporters, witnessing the production of stories firsthand, and writing stories for the evening newscast.
Katherine is fascinated by the amount of work that goes into the stories before they air. She explained that they first start with the interviews then to script writing then through editing and then finally to anchors to read during the show. Katherine then gets to sit in the control room and watch the producers direct the show.
“This internship has allowed me to see how a newscast goes from a bunch of ideas to a television segment and how everyone plays a huge role including the reporters, producers, editors and production crew,” Katherine said.
Katherine said that even though her internship can get really hectic and stressful with the influx of breaking news and meeting deadlines, that it has shown her that being a producer is something she truly wants to do upon graduation.
“I have enjoyed every moment of my time at station,” Katherine said.
We are very proud of the work Katherine is doing with her internship, and we look forward to seeing all the great things she does in news production!
