KLCC Bids Farewell To Our Snowden Journalism Intern
This summer, KLCC was pleased to have news reporting intern Jen Wright through theCharles Snowden Program for Excellence in Journalism.
Jen, a native Oregonian, graduated from George Fox University in spring of 2021. She came to KLCC with experience working for the student newspaper “The Crescent” and a passion for journalism. She quickly gained skills in radio reporting at KLCC. During her ten weeks at the station, Jen reported on the Olympic Track & Field Trials at Hayward Field, Juneteenth, drought, fireworks bans, and school board meetings. She made a huge contribution to the KLCC news team during her tenure. Her clear, crisp voice and thoughtful reporting made her sound like a seasoned veteran despite her newness to the craft. Now, Jen is moving east to work as a staff writer for the Bates College magazine in Maine. We wish her well.
KLCC is proud to offer a training ground for up and coming journalists. This is our 6th summer participating in the Snowden Program through the University of Oregon School of Journalism and Communication.
