Today’s Work – Jyotsna Scales –

Image Today I had the opportunity of working with some  PSA advertisement checks from several companies and filling out paperwork for the winners from different stations contests. I worked the board during my usual times which is 4-5:30pm and answering phone calls for the winner of the day during the “Top 4 Playlist” half.

Around 4:45pm we did have an on-air interview with Janel Lewis on the Lupus Live charity fundraiser on May 3rd. Mrs. Lewis spoke about where the event will be held, what will happen and most importantly what the event is.

The event is meant to raise awareness and research funding for lupus, an autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks healthy tissue. Lupus Live will be held Saturday, May 3 from 7pm to 8:30pm at St. James AME CHurch banquet hall located at 1002 6th Ave. downtown Columbus. There will also be a walk that morning at 9:30 am at Lake Bottom Park.

It was wonderful to hear what Mrs. Lewis had to offer and say about the organization.



Action, action, action – NPACE – Leonard Hood

This week was very interactive and busy. I started my week out in the radio room helping people record their PSA’s. I was using Adobe Audition to record them and I also was able to pass some of my knowledge of the program on to some of the people I met. Just a few days ago Color Me Rad was taking place in Uptown Columbus. The NPACE team and I were there to record some footage for a future video we will make. It was a fun day, experience, and we were able to get some really nice looking shots.

Cory Veal-Youth of the Year dinner and more PSAs

This week was one for the books. I had the pleasure to attend the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Chattahoochee Valley’s Youth of the Year dinner at the Columbus Convention and Trade Center. It was very fun and exciting. I was able to mingle with the children from all the Boys & Girls clubs in the area as well as Board member and my colleagues from the administration office where I intern. The dinner announced which club member would advance in the Youth of the Year competition in Atlanta to compete for the $1,000 scholarship.

Megan McLellan, a senior at Hardaway High School was announced as the winner by the end of the night. All the contestants were great and their efforts to give back to the clubs and the community is well appreciated. I wish Megan all the luck as she heads to Atlanta this Sunday to compete once again.

Here are a few pictures from the night!

This week at the NPACE center I had the opportunity to write more PSA’s for the radio show. The PSA’s were centered around Artbeat and the activities they will have going on this week. I can’t wait to attend some of the Artbeat events these next  couple of weeks.

Cory Veal – Crunch time!

Time is ticking at both my internships as due dates are getting closer and closer.

This week at the NPACE center, I spent the majority of my time working on PSA’s. As many of you know, the NPACE center will be launching is this upcoming Thursday. I put in a lot of effort this week trying to push out as many PSA’s as I could. By the end of the week, I completed a total of five PSA’s not to mention the few I wrote the previous week.

I am more than excited to see what takes place with the launch of the NPACE center Thursday as well as hearing all of the PSA’s that we have been working on. I know the launch will be a proud moment for many of the communication departments students.

This week ,I started the process of learning the new version of Adobe Photoshop, which was very difficult for me. I hope to grasp the concepts of the software soon, as I will need to learn the basics for both of my internships.


The Boys & Girls Club has also been in full swing this week. I assisted the club with their submission packets to The United Way fund. I edited several documents to make sure they were grammatically correct and sufficient for submission. I also worked on my first official press release this week.

I was given the task of writing two press releases for the club. One press release is for the Youth  of the Year and the other is for their annual “It Just Takes One” campaign. I started on the annual fundraiser’s press release this week and will be wrapping it up next week. I’ve completed many press releases in a classroom, but to be given the opportunity to have one submitted to the Ledger Enquirer is beyond exciting for me.

I am really looking forward to next week and the launch of the NPACE center and the submission of my first press release!
