During the summer of 2016, I completed a 6 week internship in Rio de Janerio with NBC Sports. I was one of four Ithaca College students selected to assist with the coverage of the Rio Olympic Games.
As a Runner for the games I assisted with many different aspects of the overall production. I worked on the NBC Sports Network channel and worked alongside many of the on air talents that included Dan Patrick, Liam McHugh, Rebecca Lowe, and Carolyn Manno and more.
At NBC Olympics, my responsibilities included:
- Stand in for talent and read scripts during crew rehearsal and stage blocking
- Managed distribution of rundowns and scripts for producers and writers
- Assisted producers and researchers with guest research and questioning
- Arranged transportation for on air talent to and from the International Broadcast Center
