My name is Josh Feinblatt, and I assumed I’d be going by “Intern Josh,” but David Brody likes to shout my last name like a police captain shouting at one of his officers, “FEINBLATT!”
I am the only male morning show intern, but I am not complaining. Honestly, it makes things easier. Instead of memorizing the other intern’s names, I can just greet everyone with a “Hello Lady!”
My main job during my Morning Show Internship is working with Ronnie, and we are getting along just swell. We have a ton in common, like we both met our hero–Weird Al (well, Weird Al almost gave my girlfriend a lap dance, but that’s a story for a different day), and we both were on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
In case you didn’t know, Ronnie deals with a lot of the audio at the show. So, if you’re able to wrangle the very hardworking and busy people of the show in, you get to record and edit everyone the on-air personalities. I find that pretty cool.
“Hey Bethany, we’re all ready to go.”
“Hey Skeery, can we try that again?”
“Danielle, just one more, you’re doing great!”
Those are some of the things I get to practice in the hopes of being able to say them some day! Plus, there’s audio recordings of Danielle and Bethany telling me how much they love me. I know that seems fake, but it’s totally true. You’re just going to have to trust me on this one.
While it’s been a great first week, meeting everyone, learning my new “job” (doesn’t feel like one), hording all the free food, and exchanging looks with Camila Cabello (again, just trust me on this), I think the highlight of my first week so far was the first words Elvis said to me.
“Hey, have some a** cake.” The cake Elvis was referring to was for Greg T’s birthday and was shaped like a butt. It was delicious, even at 8 am.
I’m looking forward to more fun and even more bodily shaped desserts this summer!
Intern Josh “FEINBLATT!”
