ACMi makes its pitch

ACMi, Arlington's cable-TV station, wants you on its team.ACMi News logo

Jeff Barnd, the news director, makes his pitch for participation by showing you what you can be with clips illustrating the stations where he has delivered news and the news makers he has interviewed.

See the changes over the years, but don't let the high-profile name deter you -- let them inspire you to find ways to help the station.

See below for examples of how ACMi interns have advanced.

Former ACMi interns now work in Ga., Calif., Maine, R.I.

ACMi has had many interns over the years who “cut their teeth” in Arlington and then moved on to success in commercial television. One of them, who now works as a TV reporter in Savannah, Ga., missed us so much that she came back to visit recently. That gave us the opportunity to have a current news intern interview the now-seasoned former intern. Here’s Savannah Anderson with her profile of Isabel Litterst:

From ACMi intern to anchor/reporter job in Bakersfield, Calif.:

ACMi News has been in touch with several other former news interns who have advanced in the television news industry.

Moses Small, a graduate of Emerson College, was an ACMi News intern in the spring of 2019. He now works as an anchor/reporter for the NBC affiliate in Bakersfield, Calif.

ACMi staff are proud to know that he feels that he owes much of his current success to what he learned at ACMi. He now is enjoying a great professional opportunity in Southern California. We’ll let him tell you the details in the video clip.

From ACMi intern to ABC affiliate in Maine:

Here is another former ACMi intern who has gone on to bigger and better things in the TV news business.

Stephanie Wittenbach, a graduate of Emerson College, was an ACMi News intern in the fall of 2018. She now works for the ABC affiliate in Bangor, Maine, and we’re elated to hear she owes much of her success to what she absorbed here at ACMi.

See an interview with Jeff Barnd, ACMi news director.

From ACMi intern to news producer in Rhode Island:

Here is a person who had worked professionally in television news but then chose to expand her skill set by becoming an ACMi intern. That move paid off big time when she was able to reach the goal of becoming a producer.

Alexandra Acacia is yet another example of a former ACMi intern who has made good. It is now almost a year since she took full advantage of all that she learned in Arlington and then was able to obtain a position producing newscasts for WJAR-TV in Providence, R.I.
