You might have spotted a new byline on Tysons Reporter. Say hello to Madeline Taylor, the summer intern for Tysons Reporter and our sister sites Reston Now and ARLnow.
She is a rising junior at the George Washington University, where she majors in journalism and mass communication and minors in psychology. During the school year, Taylor reports stories and helps with production for her college’s TV station and also is a member of the GW dance team “First Ladies.”
Local News Now, the parent company of Tysons Reporter, is her first journalism internship.
“I’m so excited to be interning for Local News Now this summer and to be writing my first published articles,” she said. “Thanks, [LNN’s publisher] Scott, for taking a chance on me during these unprecedented times.”
During her three weeks here, she’s already had several bylines for Tysons Reporter. So far, Taylor’s reporting has ranged from covering how the Town of Vienna nixed its 130th birthday party plans for a virtual race to interviewing local restaurant owners on how they reimagined their eateries’ openings during the pandemic.
Originally from Wheaton, Ill., a suburb of Chicago, Taylor will cover all things local news in Northern Virginia this summer.
“I’m looking forward to covering local happenings and expanding my worldview by interviewing a wide variety of people,” Taylor said.
