Avery Ledwell

Summary

My name is Avery Ledwell I am a junior at Claflin University in Orangeburg, South Carolina. I hope with looking at my resume you find that I’m the perfect candidate for an internship at your fine establishment. I believe that with my educational background and my experience with production of media you will find no regrets with hiring me to your company.

My skills from my studies of Mass Communication including Broadcast and Writing will be very valuable to your company and help bring balance in finances and increase popularity with the company and also bring in more revenue. I would love to be involved with professional media because I was always fascinated with how news put together segments and how they involved green screens into production.I would love to bring new ideas to media so I can get people back to watching and being interested in the news again. Even with the experience I have, I will always be willing to learn new things and absorb new ideas to better production.

When reviewing my resume I wish for you not to know me just by my works or projects I have taken part in but you will get in contact with me to know me as a person and understand who I really am. My experience in charity work such as volunteering at the Special Olympics should let you know I can be a caring person. With singing in various choruses and choirs I hope you can see I have other talented skills. I hope you get an understanding that I can be a leader whatever the situation maybe with my leadership roles in different groups and organizations. I look forward to you getting in contact with me about the internship and hopefully having an interview with you, thanks for your consideration

WPUB Radio Station

Summary

I really enjoyed the time working at WPUB radio station this summer under the guidance of Mr. David McIntosh. Under his leadership I got to meet various people in high power positions. I got the chance to meet the Mayor of Camden and other city council members. I also met the City Manager, Kevin Bronson who sat down and talk to me on numerous occasions about the city’s budget plan. This internship not only allowed me to get an experience outside in the field to meet new people but it also gave me a better look into all the pieces of what makes a local radio station. I hope to go back next summer to WPUB to gain further knowledge into the field.

I assisted in the station’s show called “The Locker Room.” This show started in the summer of 2003 and was originally hosted by Joe Cashion and Emerson Phillips. I was introduced to Mr. Phillips by Mr. McIntosh and Mr. Philips had asked me if I was into sports and I said yes and he asked me if I wanted to be on the show and I gladly accepted his request. During this program we took on topics about local sports, Carolina and Clemson, the NFL, Major League Baseball, basketball, and Nascar. People can listen to this program and be able to win prizes. The Locker Room airs on Thursday nights from 6 to 8 pm on Kool 102.7.

When I went out to City Council meetings I wrote down notes on the topics they would bring up. I would take all the notes I had back to Mr. McIntosh, who is head of the news for the station and he would tell me to write stories so we could broadcast them on air. Most of my stories from City Council meetings would include the budget plan for the new YMCA and recognizing special individuals for their accomplishments. One of these citizens was Jack Brantley who had received the 2011 Margot Rochester Landscape award. I hope to return to the radio station so I can obtain a lot more experience and work there either because when I was interning at  their establishment the staff treated me very well.
