My internship was with Family Life Media on South Jefferson Street in Kittanning, PA. They are a combination radio, newspaper, and television office. They have a radio station of WTYM 1380 AM as well as 103.7 FM, which was just launched on our last day, 11 August. They have a Family Life TV station which does special shows from the studio on Sunday and Tuesday nights. They also publish a daily on weekdays newspaper with local Armstrong County news titled The Kittanning Paper. Another memorable thing we participated with there is the mid-summer auction, held in place of the Tuesday night show on 10 July. The internship started on 14 May and ended on 11 August, 2018. The site supervisors were David Croyle, boss/owner, and Marci Creel, volunteer who runs internship scheduling, held the intern interviews, etc. The kinds of things I mainly did at the internship were helping to fold the newspaper, typing historical headlines, which are a special newspaper feature, going on the newspaper walk route, and answering phones during their Sunday night TV show.
