FOX News Channel University intern, Benjamin Myers, was seeking a fast-paced newsroom experience and that’s just what he’s been getting.
Myers attends New York University and is studying journalism and politics.
“I’m a huge political junkie. I especially love elections.”
With hopes to “work in a management position related to politics or journalism”, interning for Studio B and Fox Report has been preparing him for just that. Myers has the opportunity to assist with generating story ideas, pulling video and graphics, running scripts and even greeting guests.
“It has been a good introduction into the kind of tasks that a production assistant would do.”
Unbeknownst to his co-workers, Myers is a cadet in Army ROTC and upon graduating next month, he’ll become a second Lieutenant. Myers said, “I’ll have to see where my Army experience takes me.”
He also loves traveling and has lived in Shanghai, China twice over the course of the past two years. Because of this, he has developed a talent that he can add to his list: speaking a little bit of Mandarin Chinese.
Myers has been thoroughly enjoying his experience at FOX News Channel thus far.
