The first week of March was one of the most interesting learning experiences here at EDMS. We, the interns, were given the great responsibility of being on our own at the main studios. While that might not seem like such a big feat, it was quite the moment of taking what we have learned in the past two months and putting it to use.
As you all know, Elvis received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame (WOOOO GREAT GOING, WE ARE SO PROUD OF YOU), and the Morning Show crew went with him. As the saying goes, the show must go on, even if you are on two sides of the country.
Here’s a little bit of the rundown of what Intern Melissa and I did:
We started our Friday morning at 5:15am, a little earlier than usual, but not too bad. We were in constant contact with Yaritza, our guru for how to do our jobs and make sure everything on our end ran smoothly. We put up phone calls, answered the text messages, helped with contesting, and helped with loading in audio. It was a little weird to be at the office by ourselves because everything was so quiet, but we managed to keep focus.
The best part of staying in contact with everyone in LA was we had to use AIM. Yes, you read that correctly, AIM. Melissa and I did a test run with each other and carried out our seventh-grade memories. Sadly, there are no more away messages.
At the end of the show, we resumed our normal audio cuts that we do every day. But, we added a little flair and blasted Ed Sheeran’s album to help speed up time and may have had a small dance party.
Overall, the initial worries we had going into the day were eased and we realized that we can do it. It’s a good feeling to be able to say that.
Until next time,
