Happy Valentine’s Day HAPPI listeners! Last week I started off by adding commercials or “spots” into the rotator. Then Ryan showed me how the voice tracking process works. He even let me try my own voice tracking as if I were on-air. This was probably my favorite thing I’ve done since I started my internship. It was so much fun to be able to get a little taste of what it’s like to have my own radio show. Also, it’s great practice to record your voice and be able to listen back to it to hear where you need to improve. I found out that it’s actually much harder than it appears. I definitely messed up a few times and Ryan and I had a good laugh about that, but it’s all a part of the learning process. Shari, Sam, Tom, Ryan, and everyone else at the station make it seem so easy and natural but in reality it takes a lot of practice to master talking on-air especially on a live show. I really hope to be able to continue practicing my on-air presence and possibly someday have my own show.
Other than that, things have been going well at school. I attended an ACPC event that helped students prepare for the upcoming career fair. They gave tips about what to do before, during, and after the career fair and I gained a lot of useful advice from the presentation. I feel much more confident going into the career fair this March and look forward to talking to potential employers after graduation.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Valentine’s Day and I hope you all get to spend some time with loved ones. Remember to spread a little extra love and HAPPIness today:)
