Television Producer Shant Petrossian Speaks to New York Interns

On Monday, July 25, NYSIP interns met with Shant Petrossian, senior editorial producer for Piers Morgan Tonight on CNN, at the AGBU Central Office in Manhattan. Petrossian, who has also produced for Rachael Ray, spoke to the interns about his career path and how he broke into a very difficult field through hard work and perseverance.

A key message Petrossian gave to the interns was to know when to walk away. He illustrated his point by explaining why he left a stable position at Rachael Ray for a boom or bust pick at a new show on CNN that replaced Larry King Live.

    I’m enjoying reading and seeing pictures of the NY and Yerevan internships! Any coverage of the Moscow internship program?
