Management at the stations works with administrators at local schools to locate eligible and interested students. Some of the duties an intern may perform include, but are not limited to the following: music research, on-air board operation, clerical work, phone answering, accompanying announcers on remote broadcasts, assisting with promotion duties, commercial writing, production of commercials, music scheduling, call screening and scheduling of guests.
