The 21st Portfolio
Over the summer of 2016, I interned with The 21st, a new statewide public radio talk show produced by Illinois Public Media in Urbana, Illinois. During my time there, I produced audio postcards from across the state (see below), researched and pitched segment topics, pre-interviewed guests, engaged with audiences through social media, and helped the show get on the air in the broadcast studio. After my internship, I wrote a reflective research paper on my experience for my college capstone project (see below).
