Talked with one of the producers for Playboy Radio and asked them if they were hiring.

Day to Day

Arrive at 6am, have a morning meeting of the game plan for an hour-long show, be on-point and always thinking ahead during show time, have a post-show meeting about how things went that day and plan for the next day.

Skills & Qualities Beyond School

Internships!!!! It doesn't matter what degree you have, you just need to use being in school to access internships. Internships=jobs.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for college students

Get an internship with a production company. That is one advantage that most people do not get, so take advantage and get experience.
