My first month here at SiriusXM Radio as an intern has been a challenging, yet wonderful experience. I work in the Comedy Department, supporting Raw Dog, Blue Collar Radio, Laugh USA and the Foxx Hole. However, most of my time is spent doing various things for Raw Dog. I work as a call screener for Comedy by Request Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays for Mark Says Hi and I LOVE IT. Mark is a real nice guy, very down to earth and doesn’t treat you like someone who is beneath him because you’re his intern. He’s even made me an occasional part of the show. My first few days he ran a ‘Name the Intern’ contest on the show where I had to give a list of 5 things about myself. That list along with a picture of me was put up on the Comedy by Request Facebook page, so everyone could throw out nickname ideas. Well, being that this IS a comedy show, you can only imagine some of the interesting ones that were thrown out there. Screening calls is not all I do here at SiriusXM. I am also responsible for a lot of editing and loading of the clips that listeners hear on Raw Dog and the other comedy channels on Sirius XM radio.
As I reach the mid-way point of my internship here at SiriusXM, I’m excited about what the next few months hold. I am looking forward to honing my editing and loading skills and continuing to screen calls for Mark Says Hi, but I am also looking forward to doing new things. I would love a chance to help run the control boards and I would even like to contribute more to the success of the stations. My goal is to be an On-Air host of my own show one day, and now that I’m finally here, in the first step of following my dream, I definitely see that as a realistic possibility!
Stay tuned for more!!
