Anne Ledford, a senior at Centre College and a 2000 graduate of Boyle County High School, just finished an internship with CBS in New York. She is the daughter of Jerry and Pamela Ledford of Danville.
On a typical day this summer, Centre College student Anne Ledford might be found in the company of commentator Andy Rooney, reporter Lesley Stahl, having coffee with reporter Tracy Smith or sitting in a dark newsroom during the nation's largest blackout.
Ledford, a senior anthropology/sociology major, spent the summer as an intern for news productions at the CBS Broadcasting Center in New York City.
The Danville native landed the internship while studying abroad in Strasbourg, France.
"As luck would have it, Centre President John Roush was visiting Strasbourg at the time and had dinner at our apartment the night I had the interview," Ledford said. "He gave me advice during dinner and boosted my self-confidence right before I got my phone call."
