This week KCAW says goodbye to Greta Mart, our 2014 summer news intern. Greta worked for 8 years as a professional print reporter in the Bay Area before applying to the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism and making the leap into broadcasting. Greta filed stories for the KCAW News Department on her first AND last days of work (and many in between). A letter-writer to her newspaper in Martinez, CA, once wrote that “Greta covers the county like a buzzsaw.” We made that nickname stick: Thanks for the hard work, Buzz! Good luck in your career, whether it leads you back to the Bay, or to Infinity and Beyond!
Keep on buzzin’
