Kylie Gines: Future News Reporter
Kylie Gines, a student at South Summit High School, participated in a job shadow at KSL during her senior year. Kylie’s job shadow was in the news studio. “I got to listen in on a morning newscaster meeting where all the reporters shared their stories. I watched Amy Iverson do a morning television show and I learned how she does her radio show,” said Kylie. During the job shadow Kylie learned, “Broadcast journalists have a different workday every day and that most reporters do both radio and TV every day.”
What was the best part about Kylie’s job shadow experience? “I liked that I got to see everything that was in the studio and meet a lot of reporters and talk to them. I also had the opportunity to be on TV and get interviewed. It was a very personalized day, said Kylie.”
Kylie offers this advice to students who are thinking about participating in a job shadow, “I would say do it! It will help you with your whole future and realize what you may want to do.”
Kylie will be attending BYU-Idaho in the fall to purse a degree in Communications. She hopes to complete her education in Broadcast Communications.
Each year hundreds of Career and Technical Education students participate in job shadow. If you’re interested in participating in a job shadow contact the Work-Based Learning Coordinator at your school.
