WCU Communication Student Hannah Styles Spends Summer Covering Washington Politics

Earlier this year, Hannah Styles was searching through Western Carolina University's Center for Career and Professional Development's Job Cat website looking for summer internship possibilities.

She came across a link for the National Journalism Center, which places students with various media outlets in Washington, D.C. Despite knowing she would be facing a competitive field, Styles decided to apply.

To her surprise, she was placed with One America News Network, a conservative-leaning pay television news channel based in San Diego with a news bureau in Washington, D.C., that was launched in 2013. During her nearly three months with the network, Styles served as a reporter.

Styles, a senior communication major with a broadcasting concentration and minor in political science, worked with the network Monday through Thursday, and on Fridays she participated in a journalism class from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the National Journalism Center in Reston, Virginia. The class featured several speakers and seminars on such topics as video editing and writing.
