Media Relations

May-December 2006

6 Credits

During the summer of 2006 I spent 516 hours working with The Washington Redskins Media Relations Department. I had the opportunity to assist with editing various materials like the annual Media Guide and training camp media packets. I was responsible for transcribing player and coach quotes after practices and distributing them to the media. I helped the media relations team with allocating press credentials during training camp, keeping the media room organized, researching/distributinig/filing daily clips, corresponding to mail requests and getting players to interviews.

During the 2006 season I attended each home game (driving at least 9 hours round trip) to be a game day press box intern. I was in charge of distributing media credentials, getting the press box organized distributing game day magazines, copying quarterly stats, distributing game sheets to the necessary departments and overseeing the other game day interns. Also on game days, I was responsible for transcribing one of the coaches or a major player after the game and distributing those quotes to the media under a deadline.
