GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- She is also going to work closely with Jeff Jacoby, the associate professor of audio and radio for the BECA Department. Working closely with him would prepare her for her dream job at National Public Radio, says Powell.
“The radio experience teaches leadership, ownership, passion, writing, performing, speaking, producing, directing, and more. It builds self-confidence and audience awareness,” said Jacoby.
Powell will be getting her schedule for “Maeday” soon, but in the meantime, she will be training intro students in the radio production class. She wants to show people how fun it can be to work in radio.
“What you put in is what you get out,” Powell said. “You can use the radio room in ways that people don’t realize.”
