Discovering the Lowcountry | ETV Endowment Intern Cassidy

By Cassidy Haynes

Stream at Sgt. Jasper Park in Hardeeville, SC

Hi, everyone! I’m Cassidy Haynes, and I’m interning at the Beaufort SCETV station. In this first week alone, I’ve traveled to Hunting Island, Columbia, and Hardeeville, and so far it’s been a blast. I’m incredibly grateful to have an opportunity to see first-hand the work that goes into journalism and news reporting, and to share the highlights of my experience here. The first project assigned to my coworker, Imelda, and I is to capture photographs of iconic landmarks from each part of the county we reach. So far, we've had some interesting finds.

Charles Bierbauer interviews guests and recaps the primary.

This week has been one of my most exciting yet. I continued my election research and compiled spreadsheets in preparation of the primary results. I wrote an election day “how-to” that hopefully cleared up some of the ambiguity surrounding the voting process.

Election Fever | Endowment Intern Jenna

By Jenna Schiferl

Moments before the Democratic debate at the University of South Carolina.

This week was incredibly exciting. Monday and Tuesday were full of new opportunities and challenges, as I helped prepare for the gubernatorial primary debates. I tried my hand at being "A2," or audio production assistant, Monday morning at Drayton Hall. This involved laying microphone cables, connecting them to their corresponding spaces on the correct audio box and then using the headset to check that they were functioning properly. Shortly before the debate started, I had the opportunity to briefly meet Democratic candidate James Smith as he entered the building.

What Do You Mean Exporting Will Take an Hour? | Endowment Intern Raven

By Raven Furber

Raven editing a web story in her office

This week was filled with countless hours of editing, rendering, and regulations. As I finished up my story on the Hub City Co-op, I ran into the necessary evils of editing. All week I've been battling small, almost unrecognizable errors, like differentiations in font spacing to messing with the waveform monitors. There's been a lot of waiting while both rendering and exporting, but that's to be expected. We went into downtown Spartanburg this week to get some shots of the community and it was then that I realized how thankful I am to have this internship.
