The pressures in putting out a weekly show are intense, but Dave Hepp was never anything less than a patient mentor. Caro Thompson was a female camera operator, a rarity back then in news gathering. In fact, she would often be the only female technician of any kind in the news crew scrums at press conferences. I was also in a bit of awe regarding Elizabeth's skills. She had more internship experience and often gave me pointers, tips, and helpful hints. I also can’t say enough about the director Gary Glinski. Gary gave me the hands-on experience and technical skills I needed and inspired me to use NYN’s resources to produce a video project to demonstrate my skills for prospective employers — something I actually never thought of, but was considered de rigueur when looking for a job in broadcasting.
