Fox News Celebrates Ninth Class of Ailes Apprentice Program Graduates

Ailes Apprentice ProgramThe ninth class of Ailes Apprentice Program graduates were honored at Fox News yesterday. Business Insider has details on the ceremony:

“I had this idea for the apprentice program 10 years ago because I saw many young minority people in our intern programs, but we couldn’t find them after the summer was over,” Ailes said in a speech at Fox News’ New York headquarters this morning.

“I said, ‘Where did those kids go?’ They were good. … So we created the access so that they had somebody inside that they could talk to and call. … And once the access was created … every single one of them for the last nine years has performed.”

Multichannel News reports the 90-minute ceremony was emceed by Bill Hemmer. Fox News correspondent Kelly Wright introduced the keynote speaker, former Virginia governor Douglas Wilder. Roy Eaton also served as a featured keynote speaker at the event.
