Intern's Corner With Grant

Hi, I'm Grant. I'm the digital media intern here at Beasley for the Fall.

I deal mostly with managing social media and writing blog posts for station websites like this one. That being said, I spend a lot of time online so it was nice to hear that I'd be shadowing DJ's for a day.

I was taken over to the Kiss 95.1 studio to meet Alexa, a young DJ from Dallas, Texas. We got along easily, talking about Dallas and how it compares to Charlotte as well as her excitement over moving back to Dallas on another radio gig.

I began to see how Alexa used social media during her air shift. She started with writing an article on Lil Wayne and his refusal to go through security at one of his own concerts. Which you can read HERE.

From there she told me how DJ's use other social platforms like Facebook live and Instagram. I learned how everything should be synced together and how all of it needs to send traffic back to the station's website. It was nice to see the formula for how social media work is done and it's more nuanced than I had previously thought.

It was time for me to go and satisfied with my new found knowledge I wished Alexa good luck in Dallas and mad my way back to the Intern's Corner.
