What I Learned From My Summer At A Station

Haley Young spent the summer as an intern at WAOW in her hometown of Wausau, Wis. “Although I spent some time in the promotions and sales departments, most of my days played out at a desk in the newsroom, where I kept up with the station’s social media and overall online presence. I had grown up watching Channel 9’s coverage, but I had never appreciated all of the work that went into preparing a newscast for my living room every night. These are some of my biggest takeaways.”
