Annela Rova joined WTIP as an intern for the summer of 2011, and had a rewarding experience. During her time with WTIP, Annela gained experience conducting interviews, running the broadcast equipment, preparing and reading the weather and announcements, serving as a program co-host, and producing a feature story.
“It was an amazing experience,” Annela says.
In addition to specific skills, Annela learned about the importance of community radio. “I learned that it’s not about the station; it’s about the community that supports it.”
Annela believes that her experience will serve her well in her career. “The biggest thing I learned,” she says, “is that you don’t have to be cut-throat. You can be genuine and sincere, and really care about the people and the stories. Seeing that this still exists in the world is very encouraging.”
