We had the wonderful opportunity to visit CNN headquarters. We had the pleasure of meeting with CNN political director Sam Feist. He guided us on a tour of the facilities and allowed us to sit in on a recording of The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer, whom we also got a chance to meet!
We also visited the main control room. Sam concluded the tour with advice about going into a career and said that the most important aspect is establishing relationships. Sam let us in on the hectic lifestyle of CNN’s staff. This was an amazing experience and brought me closer to the news medium that informs me almost daily.
