Creating engagement on social media

By Ryan J. Ferguson This summer, I interned at Stark Media Group in Riverhead, New York. Co-owners Kelsey Stark and Michelle Hulse were wonderful to work with. Their business is a social media marketing agency on the East End of Long Island that offers a wide range of promotional services to local companies. I had

You Got to Start Somewhere

By Aaron Viltres When I transferred to Stony Brook, I came in with plenty of work experience, but I stressed and struggled over landing an internship related to my major. That quickly changed when I attended the journalism career fair in Fall 2019. This being my first career fair within the major, I didn’t know

Learning to breathe, and other tricks of radio reporting

By Brianne Ledda I probably don’t need to say this, but Spring 2020 was an unusual semester.  I don’t believe I can describe the tension at Stony Brook University in early March, the week before spring break, as the world became aware of the onrushing COVID-19 pandemic. I have never seen anything like it, and

Changing Horses in Midstream

By Matt Cataruzolo My JRN 488 experience was probably a little different than most. The COVID-19 pandemic caused World Wide Sports Radio Network, the internet radio network I was co-hosting/interning for, to go on an indefinite hiatus. I, like many others affected by the pandemic, felt scared, nervous, and out of options.  As I analyzed

Mistakes won’t break you

By Maria Cestero  This semester/year, I decided to intern at Greater Moriches, a local online publication based in Shirley, Mastic, Mastic Beach, Eastport, Center Moriches and Moriches. Though not all the articles I wrote were published, it was truly a great learning experience on how to work under pressure and on meeting new people. My

A tale of day and night

By Donovan Alexis I am writing this on the last day of my internship, and honestly, this experience is something I will never forget. As clichéd as it sounds, I’m dead serious. How could I ever forget my first full internship, at WSHU radio, during the year of COVID-19 pandemic?  The last 16 weeks felt

Staying Active in Silent Times

By Ken Fermin With no sports games to cover due to the unprecedented NCAA Spring season cancellation, I was put in a precarious position; finish the internship early or keep writing. I chose to keep writing.  There is no denying the impact the COVID-19 virus had on everyone. Students were sent home to finish their

You never know

By Frank Gargano Interning at WSHU, especially during the coronavirus epidemic (which I hope you reading this don’t ever have to go through), was challenging but extremely rewarding.  My experience with audio journalism prior to WSHU was basic to semi-intermediate. The semester before my internship, I was enrolled in Beat Reporting, and my professor pushed

Writing for a new medium

By Paige Clarke Working as an intern at WSHU Public Radio was a highly valuable experience and one that I will carry with me as I close my chapter at Stony Brook University and pursue my career path. For 15 weeks, I produced various scripts that covered both local and national news and recorded them

Getting into politics with a pro for a guide

By Kimberly Brown Before interning for Michael D’Antonio, I had recently become interested in politics. I had always stayed away from politics, but since the impeachment hearings began I became infatuated.  When Professor Selvin emailed us about Michael’s internship, I knew I had to give it a shot. I thought it could be very interesting

An internship with Michael D’Antonio

By Maya Brown  I remember primarily hearing the announcement of a possible internship with Michael D’Antonio, an American author, journalist and CNN commentator, in my JRN 301 class during the Fall 2019 semester. My professor, Barbara Selvin, the director of internships and careers at the School of Journalism, said to let her know if we

A deep dive into Washington politics

By Mike Gaisser  In December, I started an internship with Michael D’Antonio, along with four other Stony Brook students. D’Antonio is a political commentator who has authored over a dozen books, including “Never Enough,” a 2015 biography of Donald Trump, and “A Consequential President,” a 2017 book on the presidency of Barack Obama. I, along

Reporting on a beat foreign to me

By Nicholas McEntyre  When I went to the School of Journalism’s 2019 fall semester internship fair, I was not expecting to gain an internship, let alone be offered one on the spot. But when Professor Selvin pointed me over to Vinny Messana, the president and founder of Axcess Sports, I decided to give it a

An important way to try out new things

By Sherin Samuel  When I got the internship to work with Michael D’Antonio, I was nervous at first as I did not know a lot about politicians. But after completing my internship, I realized that I’d had nothing to be worried about.  The internship ran from the beginning of winter break until the middle of

Believe At Your Own Risk: A New Attack on Privacy

When was the last time you read a company’s privacy policy before checking the “I agree” box and signing up for its online service?

You wouldn’t be the first to skip right past it, or the last. Only 13 percent of people say they always read the terms of service before agreeing to them, according to an Axios-SurveyMonkey poll. But blindly agreeing to social media’s policies may have you forfeiting more than your right for a company to sell your data. It may mean your online content could legally be turned into deepfake pornography and sold.

Taking Fashion Out Of The Fast Lane

Fast fashion, cheap quickly made clothing to satisfy trends, is a popular segment of the worldwide fashion industry. Fast fashion lets consumers follow the latest trends inexpensively, in as little as just weeks after new designs hit the runways in Paris, New York and Milan. But the hidden costs, in water pollution, labor abuses, oceanic pollution, crowded landfills and intellectual property theft have spurred a reaction in the fashion industry, a movement advocates are calling “slow fashion.”

A stepping stone on the career path

By Dalvin Aboagye After taking JRN 393 with Professor Terry Sheridan last spring, I made a promise to myself to explore radio and audio journalism in a deeper capacity than I had before. Something about radio has an appeal that shares similarities with both video broadcast journalism and print journalism. I usually explain to people

Listen to your editors

By Megan Valle  Before interning at WSHU this semester, I had taken only one class in audio journalism, and I didn’t think it was my strong suit. Nevertheless, I was interested in audio and I enjoyed writing for it, so I decided to apply for the WSHU internship. Now, after four months of writing scripts

By Wilko Martínez-Cachero Vas Interning at WSHU Public Radio during my fall semester was a demanding but equally gratifying experience.  I had taken JRN 393 the semester prior to starting at WSHU, but that only taught me the basics about audio journalism. Yet, that’s not what I initially thought coming into WSHU. I thought the

A rambunctious newsroom that’s also rewarding

By Charles Scott This summer, I wrote for the Smithtown News. I spent six weeks building banks of information and contacts, awkwardly finding spots suitable for note-taking in busy press conferences and protests, and writing a mix of joyously reported stories, drawn-out research pieces and punched-up press releases. I took on almost a dozen stories,

Ask a million questions

By Felicia LaLomia Last December, when I wrote emails to about 20 different food and drink-focused publications asking for internships, I had no idea what would come of it.

The Importance of Local Journalism

By Gary Ghayrat When I started interning at The Southampton Press, the first thing I noticed was the size of the place. Twenty or so people worked inside a one-story building. And just a 10-minute drive away was the so-called “Billionaire’s Lane” of the Hamptons, with lavish properties that are easily double, even triple, the

By Joe McQueen My interest in public radio came during my first semester at Stony Brook, in the fall of 2018, when I started listening to NPR on a daily basis. I started to really like it, and I wanted to learn more about the industry. It was during January break when I contacted Terry

New skills and new insights

By Margaret Osborne The WSHU internship was a great introduction to the world of radio. I had always thought I would end up in print journalism, reporting about science and the environment, and hadn’t considered radio as a career. This internship showed me that I might want to explore audio journalism more deeply. I found

I learned to be organized, concise and conversational

By Syreeta Yelverton This semester, I had the opportunity of interning at WSHU News, where I had great opportunities like meeting politician Tom Suozzi, covering press conferences, working one-on-one with editors and superiors, and much more. Ultimately, I am very happy to say that this was my first professional journalism experience, and I am thankful

Internship opened my eyes

By Dorothy Mai I’ve never really considered radio as career path for me. However, when I was placed in JRN393 aka Audio Journalism Lab with Terry Sheridan, a door opened up for me. When I came to Stony Brook at a little freshman, I couldn’t have imagined what I was getting myself into by becoming

An internship at Mass Appeal

By Raghava Lakshminarayana The culture beat is unexplored territory for most journalism schools. The Stony Brook University School of Journalism is no exception to that rule.

More than an Internship

By Jenny Jeng The real task for me was not the heavy workload or challenges of the work itself. The real task for me was everything I hadexperienced before the internship started. Where should I get started? I think I should start with applying for the internship on LinkedIn during winter break when I was

Keep It Simple, Stupid

By Alicia Bermudez I vividly remember walking into WSHU’s Long Island News Bureau on that first Tuesday afternoon. I hadn’t been able to sleep the night before, I was so nervous about royally screwing up on my first day. Luckily, when I first walked in, I saw two familiar, smiling faces, and that made me

Gaining confidence and a new perspective

By Brittany Bernstein If you had told me a few years ago that I would be interning at a business newspaper, I probably wouldn’t have believed you. First, because I swore I was going to be a doctor, but also, because what do I know about business? At the end of my Long Island Business

I wish I’d known the time would fly

By Demi Guo  It’s funny — when WSHU’s Long Island news bureau first offered internships to Stony Brook students, I was at a point in my life where I was one signature away from leaving journalism. I wanted it, but faced with deciding on whether or not I would stay at school, I decided not

To Radio and Beyond: Working at WSHU

By Dyondra Wilson For my first off-campus journalism internship, I think working for WSHU Public Radio was great. I’ve done other internships before but none really pertaining strictly to my major, so I was a little nervous. I needed to get my feet wet, and I’m happy I got to do so in Stony Brook’s

My opinion of Opinions: a dream come true

By Jager Robinson I’ve been lucky enough to write two of these memoirs now. In my first one, I spoke about finding my calling as a journalist and loving my time as an intern at a weekly newspaper in South Dakota. In this one, I’ll explore how I’ve realized that I’m not always right the

Going Local Means Getting Personal

By Jessica Chin Every young journalism student aspires to work with the big dogs one day. Everyone applies for an internship with organizations such as Buzzfeed, VICE and the New York Times. And why not? Big names mean wider readership, wider recognition. What many journalism undergraduates don’t consider doing is going local after they graduate.

Embracing the unexpected

By Michelle Karim I never had an inkling of what to expect when I applied to Ark Media for an internship. It’s not a publication- it is a production house that creates documentaries for PBS.  I remember being confused on my first day as to how to begin doing my research. But I found a

When you don’t know — find out

By Nikita Ramos During my five months at New York City’s WABC-TV Eyewitness News, I learned more than I could have in any journalism class. The night before my first day at “7 On Your Side,” a consumer troubleshooting segment of Eyewitness News, I didn’t sleep one bit. I was too nervous and didn’t know

An adventure in advocacy journalism

By Samantha Mercado                                         Other than helping me see New York City and the LIRR in a new light, the past four-plus months that I’ve spent at BUST magazine have opened my eyes to new types of journalism. BUST magazine is a feminist publication that began in the 1990s at the height of third-wave feminism. As

An internship taught me to believe in myself

By Shamecha Lywood What can I say? Working at VICE has been a great experience! And although it didn’t end the way I wanted it to, with a job offer, working there served a greater purpose: It made me believe in myself. When I got an email from Professor Selvin about the opening last fall,

The Different Languages of News

By Nick Kalantzopoulos When I had my official interview with Terry Sheridan, WSHU’s Long Island bureau chief, whom I had first met at the journalism internship fair, he told me that I would learn to find my radio voice if I were to work at WSHU. He let me read out a story in the

Close your mouth and open your ears

By Zaynab Ubaid My experience working at “The Broad Experience,” a podcast, was quite fulfilling.
