Cydney Tucker, C’2015, spent this past summer interning at CBS National News in New York. For 10 weeks, Cydney interned for CBS’s top-rated morning program, CBS This Morning. Alongside 16 other interns, she spent the majority of her summer networking, assisting producers, and pitching stories for weekly segments. In addition to reporting to CBS This Morning, Cydney also created an “Intern Project.” The project required her and three group members to write, report, and film their own story. The group was provided with all of the camera equipment, tapes, and mics necessary to complete the project. For her project, Cydney travelled all the way to Natick, Massachusetts to film at a special needs camp called Camp Arrowhead. Once they returned to CBS, she was able to report her story behind the Evening News desk that Scott Pelley (the anchor and managing editor of the Evening News) uses. In an effort to further her understanding of the journalistic profession, Cydney rotated around the corporation, meeting and learning from producers, bookers, and editors alike. In doing so, she mastered the art of networking at an undergraduate level and solidified an Internship at the CBS Atlanta Bureau. While working at the Atlanta bureau, Cydney will be researching, pitching tories, interviewing, and learning how to shoot. This past month she has spent much of her time at press conferences held at the CDC, in efforts to cover the recent Ebola outbreak.
