College of Western Idaho (CWI) Media Arts student, Ky Tucker, is covering local news and sports as an intern with Idaho Press Tribune. His photos have appeared in the paper several times, with his most recent coverage of the Idaho State 5A Girls Basketball Championship making the front page of the sports section.
“I am so excited to have this opportunity to get out in the community and develop my skills as a journalist. My internship with Idaho Press Tribune has been phenomenal, and I am thankful to have such talented mentors to guide me,” said Tucker, who graduates in May.
His internship through CWI is part of the capstone course for Media Arts majors, where the focus is connecting students to the workforce and community.
Tucker plans on attending Boise State University and majoring in Media Production.
