I was one of two City Desk interns for The Oklahoman in the summer of 2008. During my internship, my work included everything from reporting breaking news to executing comprehensive Page One multimedia packages for print and online (which included video, audio and/or blog entries). One such package was named a National Finalist for online feature reporting in the 2008 SPJ Mark of Excellence Awards.
Here are samples of my work during my time at The Oklahoman:
"Three Oklahoma youths' battle to breathe" (with video) • June 20, 2008
"Sober school aids teens during recovery process" (with video) • July 29, 2008
"With visit, British interns gain insight in death cases" (with video) • July 5, 2008
"City girls to scout out another continent" (with video) • July 15, 2008
"Man receives life sentence without parole in slaying" • June 14, 2008
The Oklahoman's summer 2008 interns produced podcasts, as well as maintained a newsroom blog, as our intern class project.
