As an intern at WGN-TV I worked primarily at the assignment desk. I answered phones, followed up on stories by calling the people involved and officials such as the police, the FBI and the medical examiner. I also sifted through the emailed tips and set up interviews. When a story broke and the other reporters were tied up, I was sent out in the field. I interviewed officials and people who were involved in the events.

When the anchor, Dina, was not able to go to this press conference about new technology in knee and hip replacements, I went in her place. I interviewed both the patient, Gerry Gorski, and the doctor. You can find the video here.
