I hail from New Hampshire, but moved down to Washington, D.C. this fall to intern with The Chronicle of Higher Education. The internship has provided me with valuable experience as a reporter in a professional newsroom. The Chronicle is widely-read by most academics – an audience that is quick to point out any mistake or missed angle in an article. Reporting there this fall has certainly made me a better reporter and more polished writer.
This past May, I graduated from the University of New Hampshire. I was executive editor editor of the student newspaper, The New Hampshire. I previously worked as a staff writer and sports editor there as well. Working at TNH was an incredibly rewarding experience, and its tiny newsroom is where my passion for journalism was born. TNH was most recently nominated for a Pacemaker, college journalism’s foremost award.
In the fall of 2011, I interned with WEEI.com, a website born out of one of Boston’s top sports radio stations. The site covers the four major professional Boston sports teams (Red Sox, Patriots, Celtics, Bruins) and covers them damn well; in 2011, WEEI.com averaged over 1 million views per month.
