Well, today is my last day as an intern at 600 KCOL. It was a great experience all around, and I had a ton of fun during my internship, but all good things must come to an end.

I started in late May, and I definitely wasn't expecting the hands-on experience I received. With Jennifer Morgan, I ran the soundboard, blogged like nobody's business, found local stories to put on the air, and contributed to KCOL's Facebook page.

About halfway through the internship, I started working with the web guy, Tom. He showed me how to use analytical tools, how copyright works, how to publish according to copyright laws, and how to expand online reach. I've always known the basics on this, but to see behind the scenes in digital marketing adds another dimension to it.

I could not have asked for a better internship. This was my first real introduction to the business world, and it was invaluable experience I can use in the future. I also learned that radio personalities, like a few I recognized, are just regular people who broadcast for a living. (It's surreal to see them all in a meeting!) Also, working here is comfortable, since all of my co-workers were friendly people. I'm extremely glad I chose this opportunity over something else.

Thanks to Liberty Common High School and Bob Schaffer for telling me about the internship, and to Jennifer Morgan, as well as everyone at the station, for making such a great internship possible.

This is Intern Tyler, signing off.
