For the past year, Curbing Cars has been delighted to showcase the talents of young journalists, like Matt Varcak and Adam Rubenfire. Now, we welcome our first summer intern, Mark Remillard.
Mark isn’t your typical intern. He’s already a familiar voice in Phoenix, where he’s a full-time reporter at KTAR, the premier news radio station. Mark just graduated from Arizona State University, where he was a student in one of my business journalism classes.
Look for regular posts from Mark over the summer. But first, let’s hear from him.
“Hello everyone! My name is Mark Remillard and I’ll be this summer’s intern here at Curbing Cars and since I’ll be writing a lot of this website, I wanted to make a quick post to introduce myself.
I’m a recent graduate of Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism where I finished my bachelor’s degree this month. I’m a Southern California native and got my start in journalism interning at Los Angeles’ KFI AM640.
After moving to Arizona to finish my degree, I was offered a part-time reporting position at 92.3FM KTAR in Phoenix where I’ve been for about a year and half. I was brought on full time at KTAR in January and am now the afternoon reporter.
As for hobbies, I enjoy reading, photography and creative writing in my spare time. I also began collecting typewriters about two years ago and have about six or seven machines that I like to play around with.
I met Micki last semester when she was my business reporting professor and had a great time writing stories for her class and continuing to expand my portfolio.
I even got to travel to Austin, Texas for a story looking into how Austin has become the country’s fastest growing city in the U.S. I’m very excited to get to continue working with Micki and to write for Curbing Cars!
