Final Thoughts with Music Programming Intern Abby Reutzel

Hard to believe that the spring semester at SiriusXM is almost done. This was my second semester interning at SiriusXM and I can honestly say it has been one of the best experiences of my entire life. I have learned so much and met some really amazing people. 

This semester I took on a lot of new roles as compared to my fall internship and so it’s been a really busy, but rewarding time. I continued on as the 90s on 9 and Pop2K intern, but I also became the intern for The Pulse’s morning show. Being a morning show intern has meant that I need to get up quite early every day, which I thought would be really hard, but has turned out to be not so bad after all. I also intern twice a week in Fantasy Sports which is a ton of fun. It’s my first experience outside of music programming and in a talk radio format. I also shadowed in production once or twice this semester in order to gain some extra experience.

I think the best advice I can give to a SiriusXM intern is to always ask questions and to look for opportunities to learn new things. I was so fortunate to be able to move around departments and stations because it allowed me to learn the different ways tasks are completed and the differences between formats. 

This has been an unforgettable semester and I hope someday I can return to SiriusXM.
