MARYVILLE, Mo. – Editing commercial clips, organizing contest winners, and promoting one of the most popular radio stations in Kansas City was the way Brooklyn Summerville spent her past summer. Northwest Missouri State University student Brooklyn Summerville applied what she learned in the classroom to her internship at Mix 93.3 radio station.
Summerville worked as an intern for a Kansas City radio station, Mix 93.3. Summerville was able to get hands on experience in the communication and mass media field. Summerville helped set up promotions for concert events, learned how to cut and edit commercial clips, assisted with contests, and helped with event preparations.
“My favorite part of my internship was planning meet-and-greets for our listeners. It gave me a sense of power that I feel like most interns do not get to experience,” said Summerville, sophomore multimedia journalism major.
Summerville’s mom is the one who informed her about Mix 93.3’s internship opportunities. Her mom saw the radio station advertise on their social media sites that they were looking for interns. Summerville did some research online about the internship and found it really easy to apply for.
“Steve Serrano, intern coordinator and nighttime host, also went to Northwest. Steve likes to see Northwest students apply for the internships,” Summerville said. “I would encourage other students to apply for this internship; it was such a great experience!”
Northwest’s multimedia journalism program gives students the opportunity to get experience in a lot of different areas of interest. The students in the program get experience with reporting, broadcasting, photography, and social media.
“Northwest provided me with the right resources to become diverse in the journalism world. If Mix 93.3 needed a photographer I was able to jump on the task because I had background from classes that I have taken at Northwest,” Summerville said.
