Intern Spotlight: Evan Posocco
Evan Posocco interned with KUNV Radio this last Fall semester.
He graduated in the Fall class of 2018 with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and Media Studies with a concentration in Broadcast. He is originally from Canada and moved to Las Vegas in 2012. He is currently an eSports commentator and Competition Manager for Monster Jam. He plans to continue his work with Monster Jam through May and continuing to be the play-by-play voice of all NASCAR eSports events while he searches for a full-time position (hopefully locally).
Evan shared the biggest takeaways from his internship:
I enjoyed learning how to not only directly utilize skills that I was taught in class in a workplace environment but also learning the ins and outs of a full-fledged public radio station. The experience my internship gave me will be valuable as I look to enter the workforce in 2019. Especially in today's media environment, journalists need to know how to create and market content in addition to featuring in it. While my major focus was in broadcast, the experience of producing live radio shows on SiriusXM will better prepare me for the multifaceted roles and tasks that will be expected of me in the future. It was a great experience.
