Mark Yanoschik – PMB Interviews

This has definitely been an exciting week for me! I have interned at a local TV station before, but I have never been to a radio station. I have been a non-stop talker since I was little so I have always considered a career in radio. I went to PMB twice this week to interview the DJ’s Brian Waters and Al Haynes about their careers and the relationship between the NPACE center and PMB Broadcasting. The interviews were great because I would love to be in their place one day. As a student who hopes to be in media one day, I received a lot of advice on how to succeed in the industry.

Me and Al Haynes

Both of them look forward to the NPACE center launching because not only is it going to be an asset to students, but it will also be a huge contribution to non-profit organizations and business in the community. The NPACE center has already done so much already and it is going to continue to grow exponentially once it goes public. I just found out a few days ago that I am going to be helping out with the official launch of the NPACE, so I’m sure it will be memorable day!

Mark Yanoschik – My First Two Weeks at NPACE

I have been working at the NPACE center for two weeks now and I couldn’t be happier with my new job! I have been around incredible people who are teaching me new things everyday. I have learned a great deal more in the past couple of weeks than I was expecting. I helped out with the Friday Night Football Focus radio show last semester so I have been around NPACE despite the fact that I have not taken any production classes. The professors really mean it when they say that the students can get very involved with the program. I am a traditional freshman and have already done a great deal with the NPACE center. Everything that I am learning is going to be very beneficial because I plan on working in the media field after I graduate. I have interned at WLTZ for the past two summers and  over winter break and I believe this is the right field for me.  I am very thankful for the opportunities that I have had and am doing what I can to make the most of them!

A week ago some of the professors and student assistants gave a tour of the NPACE center to a group of Explorer Scouts. It was fun to see a group of young teenagers look so excited when they saw what the NPACE center is capable of accomplishing. I felt the same way when I walked into the building for the first time last summer. Maggie, Zach, and I gave a demonstration of the sports show which is broadcasted from NPACE and discussed all of the opportunities and experience that the NPACE center has given us. Tyler filmed the entire tour and I have been editing it together so that it can be a possible promotional tool for the NPACE center. It is taking a while because I am still learning how to use Final Cut Pro X (luckily I have had Jessica to help me). I have been watching the instructional videos on Professor Hart’s nownewmedia blog, which I recommend to anyone who hasn’t learned how to use Final Cut Pro X. Thank you for reading, next week I’ll be giving another update of my exciting time in the NPACE center!
