HBO-Bowdoin Diversity Internship Brings Students into Movie, TV Business

hboFor many years, HBO executive Kary Antholis ’84 regularly extended a hand to Bowdoin students, inviting them to intern at his company where he oversees the Miniseries and Cinemax programs. About four years ago, Antholis approached Dighton Spooner, senior associate director in Bowdoin’s Career Planning office, to talk with him about how to encourage a wider pool of applicants.
