So many people look back fondly (and not so fondly) on their times as interns. I have been an intern so many times and have quite a few interesting stories to share – but that’s for another time.
I interned at WFAN in 1994, and the guy who runs it is the father of Mike Chernoff, general manager of the Cleveland Indians. Mike wanted to work in sports, but not in sports radio. Thus, he took an internship with the Cleveland Indians and worked his way (for over a decade) to become the General Manager. His story is one that should make all interns motivated, and all people in the industry remember how they got their starts.
