Ravenscroft Interns Visit CBC
Several CBC divisions welcomed students from Ravenscroft High School’s Internship Program during the month of May, shortly before graduation. The high school seniors got to spend time learning about broadcasting and many other careers first hand from CBC employees.

The group began their whirlwind tour of CBC on Wednesday, May 12, 2004, at Microspace. They spent every day for the next two weeks visiting the AJ Fletcher Foundation, the Durham Bulls, FOX50, the American Tobacco Campus, WRAL-TV and wrapped up their internship program at WRAL-FM and NCNN. The students learned the finer points of putting together a news program, what kind of sales pitch radio requires and the day-to-day operations of a minor league baseball team among other things.
