I was fortunate enough to get the opportunity to do some freelance shifts for the Edmonton Sun immediately following my first year of TV broadcasting at NAIT. These were the articles that came out of my first week with the Sun, including some video voiceover work I got to do. I had a lot of fun!! :) I have been doing so much free/intern work for so long that you just don’t know how great it feels to actually be paid to work in this business!! Here’s a round-up of links to my articles on the Sun’s website. I realize that these links will likely expire in a couple weeks/months time, which is why there are also the text versions of the articles posted on this website as well! ;)
