VALE – Four journalists have joined the staff of the Malheur Enterprise for a summer of reporting and training.

This is the fifth year that the Enterprise has provided summer jobs for college interns.

“In a time when the news profession is under such pressure, the community is fortunate to draw these talented young journalists,” said Publisher Les Zaitz. “They deepen our ability to cover local news while they sharpen their skills.”

The crew includes two reporters and two photojournalists.


Cappelletti, a native of Michigan, just graduated from the University of Oregon. He is one of the Charles Snowden interns from the university’s School of Journalism and Communication. Top journalism students . . .
