Meeting of the Minds


Don’t miss “Meeting of the Minds: Rebuilding America” on CNBC tonight at 8 p.m. EST. The hour-long special, hosted by CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo, was taped on campus, giving Carnegie Mellon students the opportunity to intern for the show.

So what does a CNBC intern get to do?

Student interns assisted in the control room, escorted VIPs and ushered audience members, many of whom were Pittsburgh manufacturing and business leaders, as well as Carnegie Mellon students, faculty and staff. The experience provided students with a better understanding of the media – especially how the broadcasting industry works.
