Bethany – Internship

This past week I started a new internship. For the summer semester, I will be working at Entercorm Broadcasting in a public relations/marketing internship position. The three Kansas City stations I work for are 98.9 the Rock, 99.7 the Boulevard and my personal favorite, 96.5 the Buzz.

For my first week, I worked on preparations for 98.9’s biggest concert event of the summer: Rockfest. This meant prepping thousands of banners to be hung up for the concert. Not exactly the most exciting way to start off the internship, but you have to start somewhere.

I also got to tour the facility. It is amazing to see how many different stations and different people there are working at the building. For instance, sports people are crammed next to the rock block and everyone gets along really well. I guess with the animosity between the Buzz and the pop radio station, Mix 93.3, I had always figured different genres of radio didn’t get along and there would be all these tensions, but that is not the case here.

I will continue to give weekly updates as to my internship status.

Sorry this isn’t a super exciting update, but it should get better. This week I get to work at a Death Cab for Cutie concert!
