Tyler Lance interns with 90.3 WCPN Ideastream

JDM junior Tyler Lance spent the summer working on his craft and his passion. For Tyler, the two areas mean the same thing, as he interned at the Cleveland, Ohio public radio station WCPN. He began by shadowing veteran, award-winning news reporters and by the end of the summer Tyler covered stories on his own. He credits this trust to his determination and adaptability. He wrote news stories, edited video for WCPN's Ideastream social media, and read live news over the air.

According to Tyler,"I appreciated the producers' faith in my reporting ability and I feel that I rewarded their faith. I was surprised to discover how patient and supportive everyone was with me. It made me feel like I was back working at WRDL."

Now that Tyler is back on campus, he is excited to bring his new found professional experiences and skills to WRDL. As one of the hosts of The Early Bird's Word, he feels that he will be able to tell stories in new ways and better connect with his listeners. More importantly, he will continue working on his craft and enjoying his passion.
