WUSF / Health News Florida intern
Jacob Wentz is the inaugural WUSF / Health News Florida intern for the spring of 2021.
Jacob is a recent graduate from New College of Florida, where he was Editor in Chief of the school’s student-run newspaper, the Catalyst.
His post-graduation plans to teach English in Belgium through the Fulbright Program were delayed due to the pandemic. In the meantime, Jacob worked as a news reporter for WSLR in Sarasota, where he found purpose in covering COVID-19 and how it affected his community.
He is excited to continue reporting on the pandemic and hopes to strengthen his skills in radio news production before heading to Belgium in the fall.
