Mintz Christian Academy graduate and University of Alabama freshman Ryan Carter has been awarded an internship with WVUA 23, a local TV station on the college campus.
Carter, who was host of The Sampson County Sports Podcast broadcast on The Sampson Independent’s website, clintonnc.com, will work behind the cameras, with an internship that will involve work with teleprompters, graphics, audio and much more in the control room of WVUA. To go along with the work in the studios, he will also be involved in the productions of a live football pregame show on Saturday mornings this fall.
“We are so proud of all Ryan’s accomplishments,” said Sherry Matthews, publisher of The Sampson Independent. “He is an amazing, talented young man with a bright future ahead of him.
Matthews said she was hoping to get Carter to come back during the holidays to do a couple podcasts for The Independent,. “And, it is my hope that once he graduates he will return here to our sports department, bringing with him the knowledge he has gained while at Alabama.”
Carter also tweeted many of the high school games that he attended with his dad, Mike, who wrote for many years for the Independent.
“He has been a tremendous asset to our sports team, and I hope he will be again in the future,” Matthews said.
Carter is the son of Mike and Margaret Carter of Clinton.
