To get started, let me just start off by saying what an honor it would be to working in the city of New York City, the city of some of the most die hard sports fans in the country. Recently, I’ve been doing an internship at the KSL broadcast studios in downtown Salt Lake City, and I’ve mostly been covering BYU football. Though interns most of the time do meaningless chores and duties, since my time here I’ve been able to assist in logging interviews and games, gathering stories and statistics for shows, and also edit clips to use. I’ve interviewed head coach Kalani Sitake, Heisman trophy winner Ty Detmer, first round draft pick Jason Buck, and also former NFL quarterback Scott Mitchell. I’ve had many great experiences in my life, including interning with the New York Yankees, being a college man, serving an LDS mission, and also living in Florida and Utah, and I believe those skills would benefit this company as an intern.

Writing for the Scroll will set you apart from other applicants for jobs. Soapbox is a student run agency production.

What do people want to see live? Why?
To be a real journalist, it takes real dedication and effort.
News director, news producer, assignment editor, reporter, editor, etc.
News reporters and anchor salaries are generally low….

Its ok to be undecided about your career in college, this is exploration time. The more we rely on the spirit the more the capacity we have to create. Creativity is seeing what everyone sees and thinking what no one has ever thought. Curious people create creative people.
