What’s up DJX fans? I’ve been interning about nine weeks. If you guys are interested at all in working in radio on or off the air, I really recommend applying for an internship here. In the time that I’ve been here, I have done a little bit of everything. I’ve now gotten a taste of writing promotions. I have practiced voice tracking. I have practiced voicing several 10 and 15-second radio commercials this month, and worked closely with the promotions office on a several of their events. The most enjoyable part for me, off the air is giving away prizes; the pure excitement of the fans is always awesome. My favorite on air activity is learning about the master board, and how every knob, button and lever works and what they control.
Interning here has been an eye opening experience and I look forward to learning and doing more as time goes on. I find myself doing most of my thinking about what goes on here at the station. There is literally always something to do, and every day really is something new and fun. The music battles are hilarious Kelly k and Alex are even the upmost professionals in the eyes of defeat. Ben not only is the conductor of the ship. He is fun and patience. He makes sure all of us interns get a taste of several radio functions and jobs. The professional knowledge alone you receive from Ben and Kelly is worth the experience.
The experiences I have learned here at WDJX, are experiences I will never forget. It has helped me learn so much, Not only about radio, but also about how to handle your self as a professional. If you come with an open mind ready to learn this internship will be very beneficial for you.
I’ve heard from several friends that I have the one of the wildest internship ever. And I would definitely have to agree after running a city block in my boxers. Talk to you guys later!
