My first few weeks working as a programming intern on Wake Up With Taylor has been a truly exciting experience. Beyond the obvious thrill of meeting celebrities like Shay Mitchell, Alyssa Milano and actresses from Orange is the New Black (among others), I feel that I have gained confidence in my ability to be a producer. For the first two weeks I worked closely with Katie, the show’s producer, to learn all of the technical skills in the studio, uploading on demand programming and editing audio. After those first 10 days I was able to field calls, take notes on the show and prep pre-recorded interviews, along with everything else the show needs. One day last week Katie was out sick and I felt great “running” the show. So far, everything has been great.
