5/15 – 8/15

I assisted with preproduction and recording on two weekly shows: 11 TV Hill and Saturday's Child. I helped to come up with topics and guests. I did background research on each guest, as well as greeted and escorted them to the studio set. I helped to formulate questions and pull videos for B-Roll and cold opens for each segment. I assisted with field production of Saturday's Child and studio production of 11 TV Hill. In my spare time, I helped my boss with her monthly Programs and Problems List for the FCC.
