Hey HAPPI fans! It’s been a crazy week here at the station and I’m really excited to update you all about what we’ve been doing. Last Tuesday I worked with Judy on a contest recap. A recap is basically a summary of a completed contest that allows us to learn more about our listeners so that we can tailor our broadcasts/events to their interests. I also got to put together the overnight weather report all on my own which was a lot of fun. I’m really enjoying doing little editing projects like that and hope to explore more production projects. Later in the week we set up for the auto show which included setting up tables, the tent, and the TV as well as the giveaway items. Then Ryan and I drove the HAPPI truck to deliver the ‘Feed Your Face’ contest winners their free Tim Horton’s lunch at work. This was a great experience and it was awesome to see their faces when we delivered their lunches and know we brought a little extra HAPPIness to their day.
I was also given the opportunity to attend both a BayHawks game at the Erie Insurance Arena as well as the Auto Show at the Bayfront Convention Center. Ryan and I passed out stickers and Frisbees, ran a few enter-to-win contests, and talked with people as they passed by. It was wonderful to get to interact with Erie’s community and to have face-to-face conversations with our listeners. I had a lot of fun at these events, and I hope to get the chance to attend more in the future. As my first month at HAPPI 92.7 comes to an end, I can say that I’m truly loving this internship and can’t wait for what’s to come!
