During the winter and spring of 2012, I interned for RedEye and Metromix (Tribune Co.). I produced digital and editorial content including news articles, photo galleries and bar and restaurant reviews.
I contributed to our local news section on redeyechicago.com by finding stories, interviewing sources and composing articles.
I also photographed local events and published these photos to our website in galleries.
At RedEye, we had a strong pop culture focus. Part of my responsibility was to help think of and create timely content that covered music, entertainment and celebrity culture.
In addition to creating content for RedEye’s website, I also helped in the fact-checking and editing process of RedEye’s monthly print guides that were distributed with the newspapers.
Occasionally my stories were even published in the print edition of RedEye.
