What Our Interns Had to Say:

Working in a radio newsroom was a little different for me since I studied print journalism at UCF and was more used to writing my words than recording them. Luckily, the reporters at WMFE were very helpful in the transition and I ended up walking away with valuable multimedia clips that gave me a leg up in job applications. ~ Adam Manno (2016)

This is the one internship where I felt most like part of the team rather than just an intern. It not only helped me advance my knowledge of journalism but also helped me gain more confidence as a reporter. ~ Jarleene Almenas (2016)

WMFE was more than just an internship. They accepted me into their family and helped me advance my skills and love for radio. ~ Talia Blake (2016)
