New Intern Joins Staff
Kevin is working on a couple of assignments for our next edition, including a feature story on Christian Thompson, owner of Christian's Catering in Milan, who will participate in the Food Network's South Beach Food and Wine Festival in Miami at the end of February. Kevin attended one of Christian's cooking classes and I am anxiously awaiting the column he was assigned to write about the experience.
Kevin's experience includes classes in advanced reporting, copy editing, feature writing, newspaper layout and design and sports writing, which is his passion. He wants to branch out, however, into other areas and develop those reporting skills. I'd also like to see him get experience producing local videos, so if you have any ideas for that, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We've also expanded our local video offerings, adding a local newscast. If you're available after 3 p.m. on Wednesdays, you could be our local newscaster. All you have to do is read a script based on the coming week's headlines and we'll video you. You can add your own personal commentary and personality or read it straight. Here's an example of our recent sports newscast. Other examples can be found on our Web sites www.salinereporter.com and www.milannews.com.
