As in summers past, WUNC staff members are mentoring six teenage reporters. The young people come from three different counties, and get to see the inner workings of a public radio member station for several weeks while developing their own stories. Seasoned reporters are teaching them the tricks of the trade.
At the end of their first week on the job, we asked the students to submit a 'selfie' and tell us one thing that surprised them about the station.
"I am surprised that a radio station is so quiet and big," Lili Morales said.
