Interns! Interns!

The times, they are a-changin', at least according to the academic calendar. And as RTM says goodbye to our spring intern, we welcome a summer intern from whom we expect great things!

This spring we've been lucky to work with Vanessa Collier, a rising senior at the University of Washington. During the spring quarter, Vanessa worked with RTMer Daniel Hannah to compile information on local TV media monitoring, and to design a local monitoring project for Seattle. RTM, working with the Backbone Campaign and local volunteers, will be completing this project in the fall. We'll be making Vanessa's research available on the RTM website as the project continues. Thanks Vanessa!

Our summer intern is Eva Holman, a rising senior at Swarthmore College. During the academic year, Eva has been volunteering with RTM's sister organization Media Tank in Philly. This summer, she'll be helping us with a variety of projects, including NW community radio network planning, managing our website and email output, and expanding our library of media literacy materials. Welcome Eva!
