INTERN KATLYN – Hello WTJL Listeners! My name is Katlyn Jumper, most of you know me as Intern Katlyn. Before coming to WJTL, I spend the last semester learning about music streaming on the internet. While looking for internships, I came across WJTL and thought, why not experience, learn and intern where music streaming all started!
This coming fall, I will be entering my senior year at Lebanon Valley College where I am studying Music Business. I will be serving as the President of the VALE Music Industry Conference where I will lead a one credit class once a week. The conference is a day-long event giving attendees a chance to see panels talking about different parts of the music industry. After my time at Lebanon Valley, I plan to work in Radio Broadcasting with the hope of working at an internet streaming company in the future.
I grew up near Scranton, PA and I am the oldest of three with a younger brother and sister. My Brother, Douglas, is a junior in high school and my sister, Lauren, is a freshman in high school. My mother works at Golden Technologies, and my father is a construction worker for Pioneer Construction and serves in Navy Reserves.
While I am not working hard at WJTL, I am at home relaxing with the Dempsey family in Elizabethtown, where I am residing for the summer. During my free time, I enjoy spending time shopping, crocheting, watching Netflix, playing guitar and writing songs! I also enjoy taking trips and visiting new place with my boyfriend Josh while he isn’t busy working his internship at Berks Country Public Television.
My time as an intern at WJTL has been as blast! I have done so many jobs including, recording promos, assisting with live remotes, doing the weather Tuesdays on morning show, and helping out around the office. I have loved my time here and have learned so much about radio broadcasting while having a very eventful experience. I am looking forward to the rest of the summer with all of the memories, lessons and fun times! I hope to hear from you or see you at our future WJTL events!
