Carli-Rae Panny, Fox News Channel University

Carli-Rae Panny, Class of 2010
Fox News Channel University

At the beginning of my internship I worked as the editor of the Fox News Channel University Web site from May until the middle of August. I worked with a team of three other intern reporters and together we managed the FNCU Web site and helped to launch a new internal site for interns only. Each day I would contact the other 150 Fox News interns about ways for them to showcase their work. I edited articles, blogs, vlogs, and news packages and posted them to the site. I also met biweekly with top FNC executives in order to discuss my work and other ways to get the interns involved in creating content for the site. I would have to say one of the highlights of this part of my internship was when I told my supervisor that I wanted to write an article about a tea party that was being held close to my house in NY. Instead of just writing an article they sent me upstate NY with a camera and I got to create a package. I shot the whole thing by myself and worked with an intern editor to make the package, which ended up being featured on FoxNation.com. Also, I was a guest intern panelist on “Strategy Room,” an online FNC show to talk about being a college student and intern. Another highlight was when my supervisor sent an article that I wrote directly to Roger Ailes. Although she said Ailes never comments on work from interns, he replied to her and said that my article was very well written.
