Who shot J.R.?
Was there a second shooter on that grassy knoll?
What will George W. Bush do in his retirement?
I intend to answer those questions and more this summer as an intern at The Dallas Morning News!
It’s an online internship, but I’ll primarily be working under metro as a multimedia reporter. Split between breaking news and other projects, my role will include writing stories, shooting video and doing other kinds of mischief.
This will be my fourth news internship – third at a metropolitan daily. I plan start soon after I graduate in May.
I can’t wait!
What should I see and do in Dallas?
Read about my experiences at The Miami Herald last summer:
- Internship: First day, first story at The Miami Herald
- Second Miami Herald video: Campers cook with the pros
- Two more Herald videos: Parkinson’s patients boxing and an unemployed couple
- Crazy cook Lenny makes for a fast-paced, fun video
- An obligatory end-of-internship post: Reflecting on my Miami Herald experience

See the sixth floor museum, and make a trip to Fort Worth, because it’s a much better city. ;-) Congrats. And hit rod Dreher over the head with some sense.
Congrats, man! Can’t wait to see your work.
Congratulations. Well deserved.
Congratulations, Greg! I expect great things out of you until the drug and alcohol abuse spins out of control and you find rock bottom.
Speaking of rock bottom, I’ve been to Laredo and a strip joint called the Boom Boom Cabaret outside Helotes!
Or for more family enjoyment, take weekend trips to Austin and San Antone.
Congratulations, Greg! I wrote a blog post last month about fun places to go in Dallas. You can read it here: http://mallaryjeantenore.wordpress.com/2008/11/03/places-to-go-sights-to-see-in-dallas/.
Enjoy. You’ll have a lot of fun there!
Congrats, Greg. I’m certain you’ll do well in the Big D.
Congrats — go change things up over there!
Please, just don’t become a Cowboys fan!
A road trip to Boom Boom Cabaret could be a great features article or video? I am not sure how it could work under “metro” though?
The best of luck and we look forward to seeing your work.
Yay Greg! I’m late to see this post but congratulations! You’ll have to answer the age-old question: Is everything REALLY bigger in Texas?
@Bryan: Will do for No. 1. Can’t promise No. 2…
@Chris: Boom boom, indeed.
@Mallary: Yup, I remember that post :D
@Allan: Don’t worry. I’ll be sure to pitch it to features.
@Mallory: That was a contender for my post’s headline, but a “Don’t mess with Texas” reference won.
I hope Dallas knows how lucky they are getting you. Good luck on your adventure.
If you find out where they buried Jimmy Hofa – let me know.
Great paper. Make the most of it!
