Internship program designed to assist members of the community in acquiring skills needed for broadcast employment and to help them find employment in the broadcast industry. The internship was available for calendar year 2019.  We expanded the internship beyond a High School student and made it available to everyone.   We have an intern working for us and have extended the time frame(normally 50-100 hours) and have been instructing her on how to improve her on air work.  She really wants to get into radio full time.  When she is ready and should I have any openings I would consider her for the position.  



LATI Career Fair August 20 2019   Had presentation materials available showing all the opportunities for employment that exists in the Radio Industry.
