During her internship she will be working for three different broadcast shows, The World This Weekend, CBL/CBLT and the Hourly News.
Kleinsteuber’s time will be spent writing news stories, editing audio files and gathering radio and television news content in the field.
Before entering the radio newsroom she must undergo a series of training sessions on using various production software required to edit CBC news material.
This learning experience will prepare Kleinsteuber for a journalism career in a fast paced newsroom environment.
Kleinsteuber is overjoyed at the opportunity to meet, connect with and learn from experienced journalists. She looks forward to applying their journalistic knowledge and skills to her growing reporting pallet.
During this time, Kleinsteuber’s reporting for Prince Edward County Voice will be limited but she’s confident that this opportunity will only strengthen her journalism skills.
Throughout the past year Kleinsteuber has been covering the controversy over municipal input on wind projects planned for the county. Prince Edward County Voice hosted an online discussion in January, encouraging the community to log on and brainstorm resolutions to this decade long debate. The turnout and suggestions from the community were highly impressive. Everyone who logged on seemed to truly embrace the idea of moving on and developing solutions. In the coming weeks Prince Edward County Voice will publish a digital story titled ‘Moving Forward: past the debate over wind projects in Prince Edward County.’ It features a timeline on the issue over planned wind developments and how they have come between county residents.
When Kleinsteuber returns to Prince Edward County she plans to apply her new skill set to reporting on county news.
