HUNTER COLLEGE — In an informal survey of Hunter students interning in newsrooms this semester, three of the four who replied said they were able to transition their internship to a home setting after the coronavirus outbreak.

In the case of senior Sudeepa Singh, she has been working at CBS News’ 60 Minutes from home for about two weeks now, after COVID-19 turned up at CBS News offices and the operation was forced to temporarily close down. She adds, though, “It’s good to know that everyone is distanced and able to stay healthy.”
