First and foremost, it was wonderful seeing Melissa Berry in Madison last weekend! We shared Midwest stories on State Street and I loved every moment.
Since I've last written I've interviewed former senator George McGovern, stayed up all night covering a downtown fire in Orange City Iowa, and met with a rural family from Turkey Ridge, South Dakota.
I think I'm the only intern here who hasn't had to do a firework story yet, we've had big news with a 23-year-old man dying from a sprinkler bomb. Also plenty of court cases to go around...
I finished up my final reporting rotation. I'm on my last producing week before I cap off the internship with a 4-week web shift, where I'll act as copy editor as I convert broadcast stories to web copy and probably fill in reporting a few of those days.
I still haven't "worked" a day yet!
