Oh hey, didn’t see ya there, looks like you’ve stumbled upon my intern blog! Greetings, salutations and all that jazz. I’m Intern Liv, and I’m psyched to be joining the Elvis Duran and the Morning Show crew! I’m a sophomore at Pace University, majoring in Entertainment Management. I’m happiest with a guitar in my hands, love to paint and blast 80’s hairband music on the daily (thanks Mom).
Slowly but surely, I’m starting to fall into the daily routine of being EDMS Intern. My morning starts off with a 4am alarm and hitting snooze until realize I’m late…whoops! After rushing to get ready, Amy and I, my Tuesday/Thursday Intern buddy, meet in the lobby of our building and catch an Uber to the studio. We start by prepping for the show - printing out papers, writing horoscopes and checking emails. Throughout the day we take phone calls, send t-shirts to fans, keep a music log, brainstorm on-air discussion topics and do lots of editing.
During my first internship at Z100 last semester, I worked with Maxwell and did a bit of editing for his show on Nick Radio using NexGen. But this semester I can tell I’m going to step up my editing game. On my first day, Yaritza taught me how to use Audacity to edit air checks. Brody recently taught me how to use ProTools, which I was super nervous to learn – to my surprise, it isn’t difficult and it actually a lot of fun. Not gonna lie, I feel pretty cool sitting there with my headphones and my “serious face”.
Even though I’ve only been with Elvis Duran and the Morning Show for a few days, it has been a whirlwind. On my first day, I was lucky enough to meet a few record label presidents, some of my biggest role models in the industry. I even got a fist bump from one of them. I kept my cool on the outside, but on the inside I was flipping out. Camila Cabello came in the next day and gave me a hand hug which lead to more flipping out on the inside. Day 3 I was minding my own business, listening to the show, when I heard Elvis say “Where is Intern Liv?”. Next thing I knew, I was in the studio in front of a mic.
I had told Brody about the time that I bought a tattoo gun on Amazon (yeah, I’m a bit crazy) and tattooed a small guitar on the inside of my finger. I guess the Morning Show wanted to pick my brain a bit and hear more about my wild antics. It all happened so fast. Truthfully, I blacked out and don’t remember the experience very clearly – but I definitely had a great time!
It’s amazing to think that after years of listening to the Morning Show on my way to school, I’m actually a part of it. Work hard, go after what you want – (prepare for ultimate cheesiness) dreams DO come true. Something cool happens here just about every day, so I cannot wait for what’s to come!
