KOLD-TV interviews; Phoenix TV hiring!

There are still five interview slots open for a spring or summer internship with KOLD-TV, the CBS affiliate in Tucson. Jenelle Shriner, news director, will interview students on Friday, Nov. 12, from 9 a.m. to noon. Sign up here (slots are at the bottom of the Google Doc sheet; don't erase a student's name). Send your resume and work samples/reels to Ms. Shriner by Tuesday, Nov. 9. You can do a Microsoft Teams interview with her in Room 340; or email Mike Chesnick for a link to talk to her from anywhere.

And if you're graduating in December, consider applying for a full-time job at Fox 10 in Phoenix. The television station is looking for at least two associate producers and at least two content creators. If you're interested in setting up a Zoom interview with a Fox 10 recruiter, email Mike Chesnick.

Finally, I've moved to another office — Marshall 343 — as a building crew begins construction on a new undergraduate lounge in 323 and broadcast studio in the Reading Room. The best way to enter my new office in 343 is from the side door near Room 342 (Harelson Lab).
Have a great weekend, and see NEW listings below!
