“This program is one of several ways we are building bridges and deepening partnerships with universities to identify and develop emerging talent.”
– Corp VP of Social Responsibility Loretta Harper-Arnold
Ten students from NC Central embarked upon a new program at Capitol Broadcasting in August. CBC and Leadership Triangle have teamed up to create the Emerging Leaders Program and have partnered with the Historically Black College and University (HBCU) in Durham for year one.
The program at CBC began with a day of onboarding on Thursday, August 11, 2022.
“I’m really excited to see the first year of this program get underway,” said Corp Vice President of Social Responsibility Loretta Harper-Arnold. “Our student interns are ready to learn about the business of CBC while also increasing their knowledge of leadership fundamentals.”
Managers in a variety of divisions spoke to the students, giving an overview of the workings of the company. The interns will work during the fall semester, spending 20 hours per week in their assigned CBC division; all CBC divisions in Raleigh and Durham will host at least one intern.
The students are college juniors and seniors all attending NC Central University and majoring in Business and/or Marketing Communications. In addition to their hours at CBC, the interns will also participate in a rigorous leadership development and professional coaching program designed and executed by Leadership Triangle.
“This program is one of several ways we are building bridges and deepening partnerships with universities to identify and develop emerging talent,” said Harper-Arnold.
The students began work on August 15 in their assigned division, and the program will conclude with a graduation on December 16.
