Melodie Edwards' Summer 2013 Internship
Doing an internship at Wyoming Public Radio was the chance of a lifetime. It was like getting a very specialized degree in radio journalism in a very short, very intense space of time. It offered me the chance to learn to use specialized programs and equipment with impressively experienced journalists offering hands-on guidance all the way. By throwing us in the water with the sharks, I learned to interview with more confidence and write with a new level of succinctness and clarity. I feel like I've gotten away with a very sneaky trick in snagging this internship, truth be known!
Melodie Edwards is now a reporter at Wyoming Public Media.

According to Rhanden Lind, "Working at Wyoming public media has been quite the experience. It's helped me refine my interviewing skills and my editing skills.

I've gotten to develop new interests, and with any luck, will continue to pursue those interests professionally." Rhanden received credit for course # COJO 3480-01.
Marie Smith's Spring 2013 Internship
According to Marie Smith, "Interviewing Luke Bell about his debut album and writing a music review about it was an amazing experience. I learned so much about audio editing and a new style of writing that I had not been exposed to. I also really enjoyed listening to Luke's album! I do not usually listen to that genre of music, but it blew me away. Overall, my internship has been an incredible learning experience, and has further fueled my love for public radio and writing."
