Atlantic Cape Student Lands Internship Opportunity at 92.5 WXTU
June 28, 2012
Atlantic Cape Community College student Stephanie Curreri of Berlin, Camden County, is continuing her education this summer as an intern at 92.5 WXTU country music radio station in Philadelphia.
“I work there twice a week starting at 5 a.m., doing things such as sound edits, talking to viewers, editing country singers’ interviews and preparing for the big morning show that airs from 5:30-9:30 a.m.,” Curreri said.
Curreri, 20, who completed her first semester at Atlantic Cape, is pursuing a degree in Communication with a goal of having her own talk show.
“I hope to get ‘real’ radio industry experience, make contacts and learn about the effects of media on the public,” Curreri said.
Curreri credits Atlantic Cape Communication professor Keith Forrest of Collingswood, for stressing the importance of interning as a way to achieve her career goals—especially in the communication field.
Atlantic Cape established the Communication associate in arts degree program at the start of the fall 2011 semester. The program, which prepares students to transfer to a four-year school, or for careers in the newspaper, radio, television, magazine, film, public relations, advertising and digital media industries, features six tracks: communication arts, creative writing, journalism, public relations, radio production or television production. Graduates from this program have continued their studies in the field of communication at the following colleges: University of Pennsylvania, Temple University, Rowan University and more.
