CBS 2 employees have been posting messages online looking for volunteers for a new interactive feature coming soon to their newscasts. The TV News Message Board post reads, "WCBS (Ch. 2 in New York) is looking for people to volunteer on a phone and e-mail bank that is a new interactive part of its news department. Volunteers would be on the news set and interact with the anchors and production personnel. Good way to learn the business and move up. Call (212) 975-2003 for details." Similar messages have been made at the TV News New York Group and at the WCBS News NY Club. Last week we reported about "The Info Center", where volunteers will work online behind the news desk.
