Edgewood High School International Baccalaureate senior Marisa Russell earned a coveted internship with ABC-2 News. She was just one of eight students in the state selected for the opportunity to work as a journalist in the news industry while in high school.
Marisa is learning all parts of broadcast journalism. Her first story was aired recently, and the link to her segment can be found clicking More Information below. Marisa is learning how to interview, write and report her stories. She is also learning the behind the scenes production side as well.
She spends every Saturday at the station and this will continue through May. She is excited about what she has already learned and hopes to apply her knowledge as a Communications and Broadcast Journalism major at Hofstra University in the fall.
