Waking up at 4:30 in the morning three days a week is not how most college students would want to spend their summer. Yet, over the past four weeks the early mornings have hardly bothered me. Being able to be a part of “The Morning Drive” on NFL Radio has been such an amazing experience even with the 7:00 AM start time. My goal is to be a sideline reporter, so I’ve been trying to learn every aspect of sports broadcasting that there is.
Being exposed to the production that goes into a radio show has been eye opening. While listening to a radio show, most people would not think of the effort and time that goes into all of the clips that are played, the transitions, or checking the levels of every sound.
After my first day I realized the amount of time and hard work that goes into each and every show. My mentors Dave and Louie have welcomed me with open arms, and have taken a genuine interest in teaching me how to run the board, and produce a show. With still eight weeks to go I am excited to see the progress that I will continue to make!
