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.
At RedEye, we had a strong pop culture focus. Part of my responsibility was to help think of and create timely content that cover 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 distributing with the newspapers.
Occasionally my stories were even published in the daily RedEye newspaper.
