Our spring 2016 interns bring diverse know-how of editing, social media and broadcast news. Ebony, Angela and Marino will help lead our student newsroom as we examine the creative economy and other topics.
Ebony Romero is a junior at the University of New Mexico studying strategic communication with a minor in business management. In the past, Ebony has interned in Washington, D.C. for the Talk Radio News Service Bureau, focusing on political journalism throughout Capitol Hill. This semester, Ebony will intern for the New Mexico News Port and KNAT-TV23 focusing on multimedia journalism and broadcasting. She hopes to gain more experience through her internship with the New Mexico News Port in order to better prepare for her career after she graduates in December.
Angela Shen is a junior at the University of New Mexico majoring in mass communication and journalism with a minor in management. She spent two years at the University of Southern California, where she served as a weather anchor, multimedia journalist, and assignment desk editor for the school newscast, Annenberg TV News. She was also a contributing writer for USC’s digital news site, Neon Tommy.
Marino Spencer is a Diné (Navajo) journalist who will focus on editing during his internship at the News Port. Compared to Diné bizaad (Navajo language), Spencer says English lends itself to easier editing and construction.
As a child growing up in Gallup, New Mexico, Marino’s interest in journalism started when he listened to the KQ93 radio station to stave off boredom and keep out of trouble. He soon became fascinated with the radio DJs who made announcements and cued songs and spent countless hours listening to music and current events. His goal is to contribute an entry to the AP style guide one day.[/vc_column_text][vc_tweetmeme][/vc_column][/vc_row]
