Hola! My name is Janell Nunziato and I am currently a sophomore Broadcast Journalism student at Columbia College Chicago. I also happen to be one of the newest spring ’13 interns for the Web and Music-Programming departments here at 93XRT! I am so excited for this opportunity to intern for one of Chicago’s oldest and most-loved radio stations!
My very first experience within the radio world begins at Illinois State University in Bloomington-Normal where I contributed to the News and Sports team for the student-run radio station, 103.3WZND. There, I hosted a weekly-news show where I reported on local news stories. This experience helped me realize how passionate I am about the radio industry!
Not only am I passionate about the radio industry, but also music. Since I can remember music has been in my life; my favorite memory is for Christmas my parents gave me a tape recorder with a microphone (for cassettes only, of course), and with it I would play my Shania Twain cassette and sing-along to “Man! I feel like a Woman”. Now, my taste in music has certainly transformed from my earlier days, and still continues to.
From listening to 93XRT my love for music has grown immensely, not to mention my ITunes library! Some of my favorite bands include: Florence and the Machine, Passion Pit, Passive Me Aggressive You, Imagine Dragons, Of Monsters & Men, and Mumford & Sons. I know this semester is going to be great! & I’m beyond happy to begin this new journey at 93XRT!
