Creation Fest 2014!

July 6th, 2014 2 comments

INTERN KRISTIN – I cannot believe how fast June flew by! It seems like only last week I was taking my final exams. But in fact, last week I was attending and volunteering at Creation Fest Northeast! Creation is one of my absolute favorite times of the year because not only do I get to see performances by some of my all time favorite bands, I also get to see some of my very best friends that I made at the festival and do not get to see regularly. Even more awesome than that, though, is witnessing how Christ uses Creation Fest to change people’s lives. I am amazed every year to see what an impact can be made on such a large group of people.

This was my seventh year volunteering at Creation, and it was as great as ever! I was there for a total of 9 days, helping with set-up, the main part of the festival, and tear down. My job there is to do time cards for the main stage; this basically means that I time the bands and hold up signs letting them know how many minutes they have left in their set. It’s so cool to have that small bit of interaction with the artists, even if all it really consists of is a head nod or a smile. It really is a great gig. On top of that, I ran back and forth to the WJTL tent and helped out there as much as possible. It got a bit hectic with multiple jobs to do, but luckily Intern Eddie was there to help out when I couldn’t!

This year was as hot and wet as ever, but the fun of the concerts and the atmosphere of the crowd made up for the weather. Some of the highlights of my week at Creation were:

Switchfoot – One of my favorite groups, and they are always amazing! I looked forward to their set all week and they did not disappoint. Jon Foreman is one cool dude.

Family Force 5 – I was very interested to see how the dynamic of their show would change since their former lead singer (Soul Glow Activatur) left. I must say I was very impressed! I have seen this band perform more times than any other group, and it was one of their best shows, in my opinion! (I still miss Soul Glow, though!) They just always have so much energy.

For King & Country – I discovered these guys at Creation 2013 and loved them! They were just as great this year, and they seem like such genuine people. They have such obvious talent, as well.

There were so many more great performances – Chris Tomlin, Matthew West, TobyMac (how does he do it?!), and Brian Campbell Band, who lead worship every morning and evening, and are some of the nicest guys.

If you’ve ever been to Creation Fest, it is no wonder why it is one of my favorite times of the year. You can’t help but have a smile on your face at seeing how God is working around you. Worshipping along with tens of thousands of people is truly amazing! And if you’ve never been, I highly recommend attending Creation 2015!

Meet Intern Kristin!

June 18th, 2014 3 comments

INTERN KRISTIN –  Hello WJTL listeners! My name is Kristin Heydt, but you will probably come to know me better as Intern Kristin. I am ecstatic to have the chance to intern here at WJTL, following the lead of many before me, including my older brother. After seeing him get to do all sorts of cool things with the station, I hoped for years that I might be able to have the same opportunity. To my delight, I was fortunate enough to have received one of the internship positions for this summer! Following my time here, I will be entering my junior year at West Chester University where I am studying communication. I am focusing on both the public relations and broadcasting aspects of communication studies, so being at WJTL is a great fit for me. My goal is to get a full time job working in sports media.

I have been a resident of Mount Joy for my entire life and am the youngest of three siblings, with two older brothers. My oldest brother Scott, who interned here at the station in 2008, also graduated with a degree in communication from Millersville, and lives in Lancaster with his wife and son (my nephew Carter, who rocks!) My other brother Ben also graduated from Millersville and just received his master’s degree in new media journalism. My mother is a teacher in the Donegal School District, and my father is the teaching pastor at Grace United Methodist Church in Millersville. My parents have always had a huge impact on my faith.

In my spare time when I’m not interning here at WJTL, I enjoy relaxing with my friends and family, listening to music, taking afternoon naps and singing in the shower. I am also a HUGE hockey fan, and could talk about it for hours. Go Flyers!

So far, I absolutely love being a WJTL intern. I have done a variety of jobs including recording promos for the bumper sticker contest, assisting with live remotes, and doing the weather for the morning show. I love the opportunity to be able to have real learning experiences here at the station, and I always feel like there are impacts being made. The staff here is so great, and I am very lucky to be able to work with them for the entire summer! I hope to see you at a WJTL event soon!

Getting to Know Intern Eddie!

June 10th, 2014 No comments

INTERN EDDIE – Hello WJTL listeners and supporters! It feels good to be back in good ole’ Lancaster County for the summer, and it feels even better to be given the opportunity to be one of the interns here at WJTL! About nine months out of the year for the past three years, I’ve been studying at Evangel University in Springfield, Missouri, pursuing a degree in music business and technology and am currently on track to graduate in December of this year. I volunteered with WJTL last summer and when it came time for me to choose the internship that’s required for graduation, I thought how exciting it would be to experience the radio industry and how it works inside and out firsthand. I applied in January, and in a few weeks, I was in!

I’m a native of Lancaster born into a family of five, growing up with an older brother and younger sister. My brother graduated from Evangel last year and is currently pursuing medical school in hopes of becoming a doctor, and my sister just finished her sophomore year of high school. My mother is a teacher at CTC, and my father owns his own painting and contracting business where I sometimes work during my summers home from school. When I’m not working or studying at school, I like to spend time with family and friends, write and listen to music, and fitness train at the gym.

If you’re wondering what a music business and technology degree entails, I’ll go into a little more detail of what my experience has been like at Evangel. When I first got there, I had no idea what I wanted to do (like most students), but I knew that I had a passion for music, and so I decided to take a step in that direction and start taking music classes. I also knew I wanted to be involved in worship for their chapel services; I had been leading worship at church since 8th grade, and knew that that was the ministry God wanted me to be in. So, I met a few guys who wanted to form a band, and we tried out. I became one of the chapel worship leaders my second semester, and I was blessed to be able to serve the school at that position for six semesters. Evangel has a worship leadership degree, but I decided that since I already had significant experience in leading worship, I would focus my studies in another area of music where I could develop new skills. That area ended up being recording and producing. For the past few semesters, my college experience has consisted of spending long hours in the studio recording and producing music, finding musicians to play for my tracks, and meeting tight deadlines while trying to complete other projects and assignments. It’s been overwhelming at times, but I can’t say that I regret choosing this degree. It’s been really fun, and I’ve learned an extensive amount about music and the industry in the past couple years.

WJTL has offered a great temporary change from the work that I’ve grown accustomed to at school, and they don’t mess around. On the first day, I was on-air within fifteen minutes doing the weather. Definitely not what I was expecting. Other than being a meteorologist, I’ve been able to work in the production studio, recording and producing a promo spot for the bumper sticker contest. So far that’s been my favorite part, considering I get to use some of the production skills that I’ve picked up at school. In addition, I’ve also been able to help set up and tear down stages for a couple of the concerts that WJTL has hosted and shadow the sound engineers behind the scenes. I’m looking forward to the rest of the summer here with the awesome staff at FM 90.3! It’s gonna be a blast!

From Bumpers to Books

August 21st, 2013 No comments

Now that the Bumper Sticker Bonanza is winding down for the summer, we interns would like to reflect on our time here at WJTL and the fun we have had.  Of all the things that we do as interns, sticker spotting is definitely a favorite!  Surprising someone with a prize just for supporting their favorite local Christian radio station is a great feeling.  Even more than that, getting to meet the winners as we place the envelope on the windshield or after they have won is so rewarding!

Do not worry though!  Even though the Bonanza is coming to a close, if you find an envelope on your windshield or would like to send a picture in to win, you still can!

The listeners here in the Susquehanna Valley are a strong community for the WJTL ministry and the Bumper Sticker Bonanza has shown that!  With your support through word of mouth, bumper stickers and other displays of WJTL pride as well as your faithful donations, it is you, the listeners, that make us what we are.  Without you, none of this would be possible!

As we interns go back to school we will remember our time here with great fondness.  We have learned a lot, not only from those that work here, but also from those we met spotting stickers and doing live remotes.  As for me, I have been truly blessed to personally witness all of the excitement for WJTL and the Bumper Sticker Bonanza.

It has been a busy summer full of hard work and sending out prizes.  But my prize was getting to meet all kinds of people, getting great experience, and being here to answer the emails as you send it in to win!

Stick to It!

August 14th, 2013 1 comment

During this summer, bumper sticker spotting has taken us some pretty cool places.  There are WJTL bumper stickers everywhere!  We have had listeners send in pictures of their stickers from New Jersey, Maryland and New York!   There is even a WJTL bumper sticker in Sweden thanks to a young man who came to visit and is now proudly sporting his sticker on his car.

A lot of the sticker spotting is done in our local area but we take our Bonanza packets to every live event.  Some of us even take our materials on vacation with us!  You can win the Bumper Sticker Bonanza from anywhere.

We are still out spotting stickers all over our local listening area.  More than that, we still have great prizes from local businesses, WJTL cinch packs and CDs from some great Christian artists.  So keep an eye out for a Bumper Sticker Bonanza envelope on your windshield or, as usual, you can send it in to win!

Intern Sandra: Back to School!

August 13th, 2013 No comments

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!

Bumper Sticker Bonanza – Request. Enter. Win!

August 7th, 2013 1 comment

The interns have been very busy keeping up with all the bumper sticker requests and contest entries that have been sent in over the summer.  In fact, we have received as many, if not more, requests for bumper stickers as we have contest entries.  It is wonderful that so many people are so excited about WJTL!

As exciting as it is to receive a variety of colorful bumper stickers in the mail, it does not exclude you from sending your photo in to win.  Some of the most recent winners of the Bumper Sticker Bonanza requested their sticker just this summer.  Now their sticker is on display on their vehicle and on the WJTL Facebook page!

Even though it may feel like it, requesting a bumper sticker is not like winning a prize from the station.  Recipients are encouraged to pass on any extra stickers that they receive, but they are still perfectly eligible to win the Bonanza Contest.

Requesting a bumper sticker is easy!  Just email interns@wjtl.com with your name, address and what kind and color sticker you would like.  We have both regular bumper stickers as well as window clings.  We also have the 90.3 bumper stickers as well as Kids Cookie Break stickers and magnets.

Once you receive your stickers, simply place them on your vehicle, take a picture, and send it in!  Just remember to make sure that you either include your address or tell us that you recently requested a sticker; that way we can sent you your prize!  If you have already requested a WJTL bumper sticker don’t forget to send it in to win!

Where Bumper Stickers Touch Lives

July 31st, 2013 No comments

photo-2

There are many different reasons for wanting to sport the iconic WJTL bumper sticker on your vehicle.  I have heard from many different people that their bumper or static sticker looks great on their car.  Some of the pictures we have received have had some pretty interesting designs.  But these stickers are more than just a fashionable accessory that gives your car character.

Did you know that by showing off your WJTL sticker that you are not only supporting your favorite local Christian radio station, but helping us spread God’s word?  By sporting a bumper sticker you are letting others know about WJTL so that they can tune in.  We have heard from people who have seen our sticker on a listener’s car, turned their dial to FM 90.3 and their lives have been changed because of it!  If one sticker can do that, think of how many lives even 50 or 100 stickers can touch.

In all honesty, we here at WJTL could broadcast all we want, but it is you, the listeners, who make us a success through your love and support.  God uses your bumper sticker to help us get His message out to more people.  So when you send your bumper sticker in to win, just remember, you are not only entering for a chance to win some great prizes, you are helping to share God’s word, just by driving your car!
