KRNA hosts Job Shadow Students
Jaymz Larson and I hosted a Job Shadow today with students from WiIliamsburg High School and English Valleys High School. After the nickle tour and a brief staff introduction, we put them right to work. Their first assignment? Write a blog to describe themselves to the audience:
My name is Trevor Watson and I go to school at Williamsburg High School. When I look for job shadow opportunities I look for fields that interest me. Personally I love music and film. You can put yourself out there and radio broadcasting was perfect. Mike and Jaymz are great guys and they made my experience at KRNA welcoming and fun. As a musician myself looking to start a band learning how the radio works and meeting the people behind the scenes was awesome and just a great experience in general.
My name is Chloe Tapken and I go to English Valleys High School. I have always had a passion for anything and everything in the music industry. I also love to express my creativity through writing and speech. What I loved about this job shadow was that it taught me how it is okay to be shy and quiet and that I have constant opportunities to challenge myself as well as push myself outside of my comfort zone. I could for sure see myself here in the future!
My name is Lyla Klett I’m 17 years old and I go to English Valleys High School. This job shadow interested me because I love music and sound tech. What I liked about this job shadow was seeing all the different people and personalities. The different kind of people that work here is amazing. It was more than I expected and I loved it. It gave me a different view of what it would be like to work in a radio station. The people were very nice and the overall experience was amazing and well worth missing my English test!
We were very impressed with our students, and had a lot of fun showing them the inside workings of the radio station. We spent our time together creating some memorable content, including hosting an on-air segment interview that will air Wednesday morning at 7:45 a.m.
It’s great to meet young adults who share our love of music and radio broadcasting. We’ll be keeping our eye on these sharpshooters. Something tells me we could be calling them “boss” someday!
