Step Up Interns Rock Their

Summer @ MTN

MTN would like to give a special thanks to the Summer Step Up Interns, Tyson Trueblood and Darius Powell. Darius and Tyson spent the last three months at MTN helping on live shoots, leading production projects, and producing media for MTN channels. This was Darius' first time working at MTN, and Tyson's second summer in a row. During the internship, they were part of our live-shoot crew for the annual NorthEast Parade, the Turtle Derby, and the first Pop Up Tv, and they worked closely with our Youth Programs Coordinator Jessica on Production Services shoots in Rochester County and at Ramsey Middle School. Both Darius and Tyson brought a ton of energy, creativity, and laughter to the MTN team, and were able to work with a number of our producers and freelancers during their work! We wish both interns the best of luck as they start their Junior and Senior Years in high school, and would like to tell our community to keep an eye out on Channels 16 and 17 to see all the great productions they created during their time at MTN!
