I have been an intern with the radio station for about five weeks now. Starting out and having absolutely no radio broadcasting experience except for two small segments during radio interviews in the past, I have Ben getting the hang of things pretty well. Here are some highlights and experiences I have taken part in during my interning:
First, I have established and officially been named as “Intern Party-Girl.” This nickname may have a negative connotation, but I think it just stuck when the first week was my 21st birthday. Let’s just say that this internship isn’t your normal office job. The day after my 21st birthday, Ben and Kelly welcomed me to the station during an on air celebration with Mikes Hard drinks. I will always remember this 7am drink session. 😂
To keep up my “party girl” image, I came in one morning with a problem. I went kareokeing the night before, but never was able to sing my favorite. Always looking for segments for the show, Ben and Kelly asked if I would like to fulfill my hankering of singing kareokeing. Let’s just say I ROCKED IT!!
Another memory I will always take with me from my internship will be attending the opening and announcement where a new venue and hotel will be built on 4th street in Louisville. I Iistened to the Mayor speak and met some people involved with the reconstruction. WHAS news crew attended and I was excited to see how the press went about recording the grand opening. I am thankful that Ben allowed me to join and experience the atmosphere! We ended in a champaign celebration! 👍
