Technical Operations Intern - WGAL-TV News 8 - Lancaster, PA
During the between my sophomore and junior year, I secured an internship with the technical operations department at WGAL. During this internship, I mainly did camera and prompter for the morning shows with a call time of 4am. Later on, I was also able to work some evening shows as well. During the time between shows, I was taught how to use their switcher and direct live newscasts.
After the morning show ends at 7am, there are news cut-ins in between the Today's show. I had the opportunity to direct one of these cut-ins off-air. All the anchors and rest of the team stayed a few extra minutes after a live cut-in. It put all my knowledge and hard work during this internship to the test.
