As the Summer 2018 Newsroom Intern, I spent 8 weeks embedded at NPR member station KUNC gaining experience in everything from live production to community engagement. The highlights of my time there were my contributions to newscasts, allowing me to connect with and explore my community through the lense of a journalist.
Get Involved is a KUNC series that highlights volunteer opportunities at nonprofits across Colorado.
I tracked & produced this 2 minute spot from tape recorded by KUNC's Karlie Huckels and wrote an accompanying webpost.
Early in the wildfire season in Colorado, the Colorado Department of Transportation issued a press release urging drivers to use caution when driving among the many large wildfires across the state. I produced this spot after interviews with CDOT officials.
Host: "Although cooler, rainy weather has helped firefighters gain ground on several wildfires in Colorado, fire danger in most of the state is still rated high to extreme. As KUNC’s Jake Pedigo reports, state transportation officials are urging drivers to use caution on the roads."
