Ryan Oberhelman's Oberhelman's Fall 2014 - Spring 2015 Internship

I feel incredibly fortunate to be working as an intern at WPR. I’ve had many opportunities to produce content for Arts and Culture, contribute to the pledge drive efforts, and work on developing and piloting a new podcast. I can’t speak highly enough about the people I work alongside. There’s no shortage of mentorship and guidance, and the work culture is extremely friendly and welcoming. During my internship, my ambition and enthusiasm have been matched by the unwavering support of Micah and the rest of the staff. My experience at WPR has undoubtedly been the highlight of my time at UW. I will continue to work on the podcast over the summer, and I can’t wait to get back into the full swing of things this coming fall.

Thanks to Grady and Micah and all the welcoming, helpful staff at WPR for allowing me this opportunity.
