2018 Internship – The James Alan Cox Foundation for Student Photojournalists

2018 Internship

The Foundation is proud to announce our new fall intern at KTVK 3TV – KPHO CBS 5, Phoenix!

Matthew Torres-Gomez

Matthew Torres-Gomez recently joined the 3 TV – CBS 5 team as the 8th annual James Alan
Cox Foundation photojournalism intern. Currently pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Broadcast
Media at Huntington University in Peoria, Arizona, he will be graduating this December.
Matthew first found his love for visual storytelling in high school where he took a Digital
Media class and couldn’t stop thinking about a career in that field. This is his first time
working in a broadcast news station, so the challenge, according to him, has been
extraordinary. His passion, he says, “is to create visual stories that are able to evoke an
emotional response within my audience.  There’s no better way to do that then with a story
that people can relate to.” Matthew also says he loves to shoot and edit, and that is the core
of what he has been learning at school and in the field.

Other internships/experiences he has completed include work for the Arizona
Diamondbacks, the Peoria Sports Complex and Radiant Church, as well as working with
multiple non-profits to tell their stories and creating different promos/corporate videos
through school.

Matthew thanks the Foundation for the possibility of having an internship at the station and
told the Board that “your brother is a huge inspiration for me to keep going at it 110% each
day. Not to mention the work and enthusiasm he showed here at the station still rings
within everyone I talk to.”
