On Monday, I started my internship at Kidd Kraddick in the Morning. If you’re not familiar with the show, it’s a morning radio show based in Dallas. This internship was extremely exciting to land because I grew up listening to the show and I want to move more toward that side of the spectrum.
I was pretty nervous my first day, but I’m getting the hang of things. It wasn’t the usual get coffee do whatever thing. I got there and was put to work instantly. Updating blogs, refreshing my memory with photoshop and I made a promo for Ed Sheeran to be in studio.
Tuesday, Mark Cuban came into the studio and did a mini “Shark Tank” for I Have a Dream Week. I slightly edited the photos from that and posted them to our web page.
The week is always entertaining when the guys in the office start grabbing hula hoops and jumping through them “ninja style”; or shoving cupcakes in their mouths. Just a few things to remind us that we’re only halfway through the week.
Thursday, I made a page for the Ed Sheeran performance, did the Best of the Day page, which I do every day, and of course I did blogs.
Friday, Lisa Vanderpump calls in, which of course I highly recommended to Robert, the director of the show. Who doesn’t love Lisa? You know, from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Vanderpump Rulls. I finished doing some photoshop work and then it was time for Ed Sheeran. I was pretty nervous about this because it was my first time to be up close and personal with a musician that wasn’t one of my friends, or one of my friend’s friends.
Nick, our video guy, comes up and asks me to film…granted I have never filmed on fancy camera like that before. My little JVC and iPhone were the only camera’s I had ever filmed on. But apparently it didn’t matter. I was super nervous to do this, because I didn’t want to screw things up. Luckily, it wasn’t live. He told me not to be scared to try things, which of course I was terrified. My hands were shaking not because Ed Sheeran was playing music in front of me, but because I really didn’t want to screw this up.
Thank God I had my pal Russ to talk me through everything. I found myself sometimes too into the moment and having to snap out of it quickly as my camera was the one being projected. In the end, it all worked out and I would say I did a pretty good job for my first time.
