I Wanna Work for Radio One
When I first applied for an internship with WPHI 100.3 The Beat, I had no idea what to expect, I honestly thought it was going to be trips for coffee and runs to the copy machine and printer. I was definitely wrong, and that became clear at the interview. The day of the interview I learned that this internship was not just for WPHI, but also WRNB 107.9 and Praise 103.9; this was an internship for Radio One Philadelphia. I joke and say that the interview process was something like “I Wanna Work for Diddy,” but in all seriousness it was rather intense, causing you to think quick, think creative, and think smart. Many were interviewed, but only a few made it, and this internship is far from a cake walk. Our first promotional event was a taste of what to expect for the summer; setting up tents, hanging up banners, talking to listeners, handing out giveaways, taking pictures, all in the pouring rain. My body was sore the next day, but I enjoyed myself.
