TWC’s Media and Communications interns enjoyed a “beyond the headlines” tour at The Washington Post.
The visit was arranged by Anne Gearan, a 1985 TWC alumna, who joined The Post this past July as a diplomatic correspondent covering the State Department and the Secretary of State. Anne spoke about her experience prior to joining The Washington Post. Her experience includes a position at the Associated Press, where she covered every “D.C. beat” from the Pentagon, the Supreme Court, the White House and Congress. She also answered student questions such as:
- Breaking into the business of journalism
- Honing their writing skills
- Developing sources for stories
The “lunch and learn” session was followed by a tour of the Washington Post headquarters, which included stories of meetings with Gorbachev, impressive displays of Pulitzer Prizes and Emmy Awards and The Washington Post museum.
