Hello Everyone! Welcome to the first addition of Fox Rocks with Kate and Carly, your weekly intern update. Every Friday well fill you in what its like to be an intern at Fox News. Well keep you up-to-date on our duties within our department, the important people we meet or greet, and we might even give you a little insight into our life outside of work.
We welcome you to join us at the end of every week. But before we begin heres a little info about us!
The 411 on Carly and Kate:
Hello! My name is Carly, and I am one of the summer booking interns for Happening Now. I work with a great team of people who are teaching me so many valuable things. Everyone at Fox News is so encouraging, and the fair and balanced attitude is not only present in our programming, but also behind the scenes.
Ive already had so many incredible opportunities in my first two weeks; I can hardly imagine what is to come. Ive definitely had two highlights so far- hearing the president of Fox News, Roger Ailes, speak to the interns, and getting the opportunity to meet Bill Hemmer, co-host of Americas Newsroom. Both men are incredibly intelligent, and the advice they gave was nothing short of helpful.
The main theme of their advice seems to be to always ask questions and seize every opportunity to excel. So, I pass that wisdom onto you, the viewers. Never let an opportunity pass, because you never know what it will lead to in the future.
Welcome Happening Now fans! Im Kate from Texas, so I guess a Hey Yall is more appropriate. Like Carly, Ill be interning at Fox News until August, so I have just enough time to figure out the subway system before I go back to the land of open roads and cowboy boots. Through this blog, Ill keep you updated on my experiences as an intern.
I, too, have already had some pretty amazing experiences here at Fox News. I was originally assigned to help out with America Live, but I also assist the booking unit for Americas Newsroom and, obviously, Happening Now. Since I help with more than one show, Ive been able to greet a variety of important guests including former governors George Pataki and Mike Huckabee.
I feel so lucky to have the opportunity to spend a summer in NYC. I look forward to learning more about what goes into producing a show on what I consider to be the BEST network in the news industry. I hope I can leave you enlightened by the summers end, but if not, at least it will provide some good reading material for those of you who have trouble sleeping!
