Framingham resident Maya Kachroo-Levine selected by NBC Sports to intern at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.
A senior majoring in journalism at Ithaca College, Kachroo-Levine is among 35 students from the college who will be serving an essential behind-the-scenes role at the world's biggest athletic event, taking place July 27–Aug. 12.
Ithaca is one of only a handful of colleges and universities nationwide with which NBC partners to recruit interns for its Olympics coverage. Thirty-three of the interns are from the Roy H. Park School of Communications, with one each coming from the School of Music and School of Health Sciences and Human Performance.
Half of the students, including Kachroo-Levine, will be traveling to London for their intern assignments, with the rest based at NBC's 30 Rock headquarters in New York City.
Some will be working at specific events, including the high-profile sports of basketball, gymnastics, swimming and track and field. Others will handle tasks such as reviewing video for what's known as the Highlights Factory, which the network developed to package and distribute coverage through multiple media platforms.
