RevereTV welcomes our new intern, Gavin McAlinden. Gavin comes to us from Lurgan, County Armagh, just twenty miles south of Belfast, Ireland. With Boston’s climate similar to his native country and a large Irish population, Gavin sees the city as “a home away from home.”
His interest in television and media began in high school. A poster in his hometown alerted him to this opportunity. He applied and after three interviews, was accepted for the program. He will be here for six weeks until May 25th. When he returns home, he plans on going to university to complete his studies with a long term goal of getting a job in the industry.
An avid sports fan, Gavin finds it easy to cheer along with the rest of sports hungry Boston. While playoff tickets to the winter sports seem beyond reach, he would be happy to attend a Revolution match at Gillette stadium or a Red Sox game at Fenway Park
During his internship, Gavin is expanding his editing experience on RevereTV’s state of the art equipment. His name will be in the credits of studio productions as he sharpens his skills on everything from directing to running the robotic cameras from the control room. You may also find him on location in the city, camera in hand, covering events of interest in Revere.
