Eugene, Sports Programming Intern – NFL Radio

When I received this job I did not really know what to expect.  I understood it was a radio station and that much of the concepts and equipment like the ones I used at school were going to be found at SiriusXM.  But I did not know to what extent and I had no idea what else I was going to learn about.  After my first few weeks here, I can definitively say that I am blown away by the amount of factors that go into a Radio Show.  Because my school’s radio station is not very big, we do not have anywhere near the equipment or software that is used at SiriusXM.  Everything was very foreign to me for the most part, but as time went on, I figured it all out.  I spend four days a week, not only learning the ins and outs of a radio show, but being able to take what I learned and actually perform those actions on the radio station.  We are about four weeks in and I have already spent a ton of time working the audio board and have already found myself comfortable with it!  It is honestly amazing how much I have learned while hear at Sirius, whether it be how to work the board or what software does what.  It has been an extremely rewarding experience so far and I am extremely excited to see what the next few weeks have in store.
