Nermene Fakhr is still smiling from ear to ear after spending a day shadowing a journalist at MTV News, getting two stories published on their website, AND getting to meet rapper Chris Brown and shake his hand.

SUNY Purchase Journalism Student Has Her MTV Dreams Come True

“Mike Piazza Reporting for Howard 100 News.”
Mike Piazza, a SUNY Purchase journalism major, proudly uttered those very words on the air when his radio story about shadowing a reporter on Howard 100 News was put on SiriusXM during one of their news flashes last year.
(In case you’re wondering, that’s Howard, as in, Howard Stern.)
Mike was recently back at the Howard 100 News offices with some of his intern pals and had this picture taken.
Mike made Howard 100 history, becoming the show’s first intern to name himself on air. Here’s the clip: Mike The Shadow Audio

Blogging for BUST
When SUNY Purchase Senior Brittany Houlihan started her internship at BUST magazine at the start of this semester she had no idea it would “result in a freelance piece, a credit in the masthead, over 30 blog posts, and a lot of experience.”
But last week she handed me a bright pink folder containing a copy of the magazine and printouts of her blog posts. As I was leafing through her clips, she proudly showed me the masthead of the magazine with her name in print. That never gets old, does it?!
The magazine bills itself as being: “For Women Who Have Something To Get Off Their Chests.” Brittany says it’s “Feminist. Crafty.” She’s been a fan of the magazine since she was introduced to it last year and approached them about an internship earlier this year. In June, she got a call from their internship co-ordinator calling her in for an interview. Soon, she was in their 27th Street offices in Manhattan blogging up a storm.
