Intern Sandra: Back to School!
Intern Sandra here, and this morning I am overwhelmed with how blessed I have been by the WJTL community during my summer internship!
In the May of 2011 I walked into the studio at the old location for the first time, nervous and excited to meet all of the DJs and staff that I grew up listening to on air. Fast forward two years, and I get to come to the Junction Center twice a week, hang out with some amazing people, and get to know the listening community better! What a blessing!
The first thing people ask me when they find out I’m a WJTL intern is “Are the DJs and on-air personalities just as fun and kind off air as they are on air?” My answer is always a resounding yes. Being on air with Fred and the Get Up and Go Show has been a blast, with many laughs on air and off. I’ve learned so much from the wisdom and experience of everyone here, and getting to put my new skills into practice on the 9 O’Clock coffee break has been so much fun.
This summer I expanded my horizons past the Junction Center, and took to the Cookie Car to get out into the community and get the scoop on upcoming events with my “Intern Sandra Out and About” segment. I’ve deeply enjoyed getting to know both our listeners and the Lancaster area better. At Creation Northeast, I also got to meet many of our listeners at the WJTL tent, and was so happy to see that WJTL has impacted so many people as much as it has impacted me.
The love and joy that surround WJTL is inspiring, and I can’t think of a better way to spend my summer. Tomorrow I head back to Grove City College for my senior year, and while I’m excited to go back, I know I’ll be tuning in online to keep up with my favorite station.
Thank you to everybody in the WJTL family who made this summer a joy!
