CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Ever been interested in becoming a journalist? Are you good with graphic design? Do you know the multiple different paths to get to work in a newsroom? If not you, do you know a student who would be interested in learning about this?

WCNC Charlotte helped to make a difference for college students by hosting a series of educational sessions this summer, to give a first-hand look at what it's like working at a local television station.

This Summer, the staff at WCNC Charlotte had virtual education sessions covering what a student would learn in a day of shadowing someone in a local newsroom, on a sales team, or marketing the station.
