Folks, I’m pleased to say a Shorthorn staff member has been selected as the Buster Haas intern for three of the last four years. Most recently, Dylan Bradley (Shorthorn projects editor and current Star-Telegram intern) spent the summer at the Longview News-Journal covering general assignments. Before Dylan, Johnathan Silver (current criminal justice reporter for the Texas Tribune) and Monica Nagy (current crime reporter for the Star-Telegram) were Buster Haas interns. Johnathan worked for the Victoria Advocate, and Monica worked at the Bryan-College Station Eagle.
I hope you’ll consider applying. Find details and the application here.
