I submit for the committee's consideration this report on my internship at WLAE-TV, Channel 32, a nonprofit Public Broadcasting Station in New Orleans. Through the internship in the Development Department, I was involved directly in one of WLAE-TV's major fund-raising events, the spring Antique/Arts Auction. The duration of the internship was from January 19, 1987 to May 14, 1987. I worked under the supervision of Mr. Gregory Weaver, WLAE-TV's Auctions and Special Events Director. Unfortunately, due to problems in scheduling certain volunteers, WLAE's Antique/Arts Auction broadcast dates were moved from early to late May. The schedule change moved the Auction beyond the given parameters of my internship. Although I was unable to participate in the on-air auction itself, I believe that my pre-auction assignments have nevertheless made this particular internship an extremely valuable learning experience.
