In the Spring of 2011, I completed an internship in the Promotions Department at XLC/1220 WKRS, Lake County’s #1 Contemporary Pop Music Station! I worked one on one with 102.3XLC and 1220 WKRS’s Promotions and Interactive Director, Janelle Rominski.
Throughout my internship at XLC, I mainly performed basic office duties like making phone calls, updating databases, and filing paperwork. I created “bonus codes” for loyal listeners to win cool prizes. I entered in the prize sheets from the contests callers win on the radio. I also worked remotes (events) at Libertyville Mitsubishi and Rockenbach Chevrolet where I had to interact with listeners and promote the station XLC

I created several remote recaps for XLC and WKRS events.
I updated their website and created bonus codes for loyal listeners to win prizes.
I dated prize sheets so the jocks could fill them out with the prize winner’s info.
Once the jock filled out the prize sheet, I entered it into the Excel database.
Once it was in the system, I attached the prize winner sheet and mailed it out.

1220 WKRS and Consumers Credit Union gave listeners an opportunity to win $1,220 and match their refund with the 1220 WKRS Tax Day.
