While a summer 2018 news intern at KDFW Fox 4 Dallas, I learned more than I ever imagined. I produced video stories for our Fox 4 Intern Instagram page and also wrote a few stories for the early evening newscasts. I also had the opportunity to record an anchor demo and edit a package about a major marijuana bust. Below are some of my favorite pieces I produced for Instagram, my Fox 4 producer reel, my Fox 4 anchor demo, and my package!
I had the opportunity to write a few scripts for the 5:00 and 5:30 PM newscasts. This experience opened my eyes to what producers do on a day to day basis and I loved writing! These are a few stories I wrote. I also produced the supers and some stories I even went out and helped the photographer shoot the video.
Towards the end of my time at Fox 4, I had the opportunity to record a short anchor demo with stories that aired on previous newscasts.
I had the opportunity to shadow Fox 4 reporter James Rose in the field. Our story that day was the Navarro County Sheriff’s Office received a tip about supicious activity. Officers checked it out and found a major marijuana growing operation. This was such a fun story to go out on. It’s not every day you see something like this!
On July 5, 2018, Blue Bell announced via Twitter that their fan favorite Fudge Bars were hitting store shelves after being gone for nearly three years. Some Fox 4 Interns headed out to grab some of our own!
Frisco Family Services hosted their annual Mayor’s Golf Classic, where “Our Little Hands” volunteers set up a lemonade stand to help raise money for FFS’ “Back2School” program. It was such a heartwarming story!
Tacos 4 Life in Frisco hosted their first annual “Hunger Hero Day.” Hunger Hero Day was a way for Tacos 4 Life to thank their customers for their help in donating over five million meals to “Feed My Starving Children.” Anyone who dressed like a hero got a free taco on Taco Tuesday!
The Frisco Discovery Center has a new exhibit: TrainTopia! It’s one of the largest model train sets in the country and was donated to the center by Mrs. Jane Sanders. The collection was her husband’s. I give some facts about the exhibit. TrainTopia opened on July 18, 2018.
