So being an intern at U92 cannot be described in one word, maybe not even a whole page, but I will describe my experiences here in this blog. Imagine your dream job, then that company holds an open house/job fair, then that company interviews you, calls you back for a second interview, and you actually get the job. Sounds pretty intensive but that's what happened to me!
Being an intern is awesome! My first day Mr. Paulo and I drove around a U92 van and parked it on the corner of 3500 S. and Redwood Rd. We then handed out prizes and listened to music for an hour. I couldn't believe people get paid to do this! That same weekend was just a fast paced blur of events. From hanging 10 miles from my home town at Stansbury High, to setting up a private show for Runner Runner, and ending the night off with a remote broadcast from one of the haunted houses, I was pretty exhausted.
Sunday was great because it was a day of complete rest...finally, but on Monday I was back at it again. I had the pleasure of meeting Jason Derulo, Iyaz, and eating lot's of submarine sandwiches. One thing I couldn't believe is how much work goes into an event. There's people constantly e-mailing, calling, and yelling around the office to get everything in line for whatever event is to be tackled next. It can get a little hectic at times, but nothing I can't handle.
Working with some of the characters here at the station is great. I get to report to Flacco who is awesome at his job, loves joking around, and is more than willing to work with me and my schedule. My day-to-day duties vary. I may be working on updating the Website one day and driving to a B.o.B. concert the next day. There is always something to do here.
One of the best things about being an intern is setting up for remote broadcasts at different locations. I am very social and love interacting with different people. One thing I know for sure about this internship is you never know what to expect as soon as you walk through the doors.
