During summer 2010, I interned at Magnum Broadcasting, a.k.a. QWiK Rock 105.9/106.9 for approximately six weeks. I sat in on sales and promotional meetings, interviewed strangers in order to create 60 second segments that would be aired on the AM station, recorded a number of commercials, as well as prepare and set up community events. The skills and knowledge that I aquired while working at the radio station extends far beyond just broadcast journalism. I’ve learned that in life I will work with people who are not always my “cup of tea” but that I should be open to others opinions and ideas. Working in radio as my first internship was very challenging and rewarding.
