It’s odd when the intern’s the boss.

For the last few weeks, I’ve been editing PBS MediaShift’s Daily Must Reads, a collection of the latest news in media innovation and journalism industry trends. Though it often requires me making simple edits such as checking links and deleting commas, I often make much more substantive calls, such as nixing or pitching stories.

A few weeks later, Mark’s first pick for their podcasting intern had to go, and he promoted me to work on the podcast as well with double the pay.
