After months of doing whatever crazy and silly things Jeanne and Cooper told me to do as an intern, I finally got my chance to shine as the newest member of the MIX108 staff!As an unpaid intern I pretty much did anything they told me to do and got paid in experience. They even gave me a new identity, Captain Red Beard. Now don't get me wrong, I loved being an intern. I got to see how the magic of radio happens first hand, I got to be in the studio when funny calls came in and I was able to be a part of some awesome videos. I also feel my internship properly prepared me for my career in radio.

Now that I'm a paid staff member, I feel like I have finally arrived. I'm now seen as apart of the immediate family rather than a red-headed step child. Everyone is so nice here too, always asking if I need anything or how's the new career going so far. I'm still doing the same silly stuff and making awesome videos, but at least I'm getting paid for it now! I'm so happy to be here and can't wait to see where this new career takes me!
