February 2007-June 2008
I coordinated VITAC closed caption updates for the “CBS Early Show” and “CBS Evening News with Katie Couric,” and was on-call for the “Weekend Evening News.”
The majority of my work included background research on guests using LexisNexis and ENPS software. I was also required to gather b-roll for teases, promos, and features, using MediaManager and the extensive CBS news video archive system. On occasion, I produced satellite interviews, voice overs, and teases for the “CBS Weekend Evening News.” I answered viewer phone calls for the “Evening News with Katie Couric,” which often required the ability to listen and tactfully respond to their questions and comments when possible. And I produced the doctor’s office interviews in this story about HPV vaccinations for boys and provided background research for the final story.
