Internship Program


During the 2019 calendar season WOODARD BROADCASTING kept our commitment to local schools and Universities with our “Internship program” as an outreach method. From Jacksonville State University we had RAYMOND FOSTER as our intern with our station from January 8th 2019 through April 11th 2019 . While Raymond was with WOODARD BROADCASTING he learned production skills, attended multiple remote broadcasts learning how to set up and do actual remote broadcasts.

 

Meanwhile WOODARD BROADCASTING also worked with different schools in our area with this program as well. WOODARD BROADCASTING had information on a student that was supposed to come in an do a job shadowing with Steve Stevens from WOODARD BROADCASTING however the student and family moved to Georgia as his father took another job and was not able to come in after all.
