My goodness, it's been a YEAR! I cannot believe I have gotten to spend an entire 52 weeks telling people I work on Elvis Duran and the Morning Show. From jock meetings to new show members, Jingle Ball to natural disasters, it's been quite a ride. No one will ever say I struggle for words, so in an attempt to summarize this crazy experience, here are my top five tips for any incoming intern:
1. Learn as much as you can from everyone you can, including everyone's usual breakfast orders.
2. Never, ever miss a day you're scheduled for. Sandy hit during my time with the show and luckily, I lived close enough to be able to safely get to the studio, even in complete darkness. Watching the show on a normal day is great, seeing how it runs on a day when the world kind of stops is even better.
3. Don't forget to save as stereo and always ask your fellow interns for help. There is normally a lot going on and the quickest, least disruptive way to get answers is to ask the girl/guy sitting next to you. That being said, if you both don't know, ASK SOMEONE ELSE.
4. When guests come in, play it cool. My heart almost exploded when Allison Williams came in, and because I was casually sitting at the web desk, she came over and spoke to me. As far as pictures go, trust me, you reevaluate any self confidence you have when standing next to beautiful people. Celebs deal with fans all day- they don't need anyone else fawning over them (remember, you're technically at work!)
5. Seriously, try not to miss even one day because at the end of it all, you will realize how kind and helpful every single member of the show is and how fortunate you are to get to come to the studio, even at 5 in the morning.
Best of luck, newterns, and know that you have big shoes to fill .
Sincerely, and the for the very last time,
Alright kiddies, I guess all good things have to come to an end. I can truly say this has been a life changing experience in which I wouldn't have traded for the world. From meeting celebrities to stalking Carla Marie in order to learn everything about the radio industry, for the past four months I've been waking up twice a week not knowing what to expect. To say the least, it's never been a dull day at the Morning show, and I really am sad to leave.
It's been slowly hitting me the past month that this isn't my home; other interns will move in and I will be kicked to the curb (or kindly escorted out while I dig my nails into the floor and refuse to leave.) Now that the time is actually here, I will miss the little things like Greg T walking around with vibrators in his hands or going down to pay someone's meter. I don't want to take anything here for granted, and no matter where I end up in life, I will bring all my experiences with me.
Looking back, I remember feeling very intimidated on my first day. There's been ups and downs, and though I've made my share of mistakes, they have taught me a lot and helped me grow. I may not have come here with as much radio experience as other people, and I may have had a few bumps in the road, but because I pursued what I love, I think I left (even a tiny) foot print in the Morning Show studios.
I hope you, my one reader, has at least tolerated my nonsenses this past semester and continue to stay a loyal listener to Elvis Duran. These people may seem like celebrities behind the radio, but they are the most down-to-earth bunch of wackos you'll ever meet; you really can't help but love each and every one of them...even Skeery.
Well tata for now my loves; hopefully I'll come running through these doors again soon. If not, I shall see you someday, somewhere. If there's one thing I can give to you from my experiences here, it's dream big. No matter how scary things may seem or how unconfident you feel, you will learn, and you will be great.
I can’t believe this actually happened. I met my idol, Demi Lovato! She gave me a hug too! Like what?! I am still shaking.
This was one of the best experiences of my life!! Working at Elvis Duran and the Morning Show has changed my life in the most incredible way, and I'm so honored to be working here with these amazing people.
I love everyone. You are all beautiful people!
Here is the interview and more pictures! I come in at 15:00.

Ta ta for now, Intern Nicole
Hello Duran divas! I know it’s been quite some time, but boy did I miss you! Since the last time we’ve talked, I learned to pole dance in Miami (long story,) we celebrated Danielle’s birthday with some Bacardi boys, and I realized that this internship is almost coming to an end [tear L.]
During these past few weeks, I’ve appreciated this place more than ever (which I never thought was possible.) I know it’s only March, but knowing that once May comes along, a new army of interns will be taking our place, is making me so sad! I know it’s only a fantasy, but I really do wish I could stay here forever.
But instead of drowning my sorrows in Max Brenner’s dessert cake and vegetable platters, I’m soaking in everything from production to web to assistant work (oh my!) Basically, as long as I can do my part and learn from these oh so fabulous people, I can stay in this fantasy. I really have learned to appreciate every aspect of radio, and everyday I realize how much I belong in this industry.
As much as I’d love to stay here and vent, it’s a gorgeous day and I should probably go for a run. Tata for now divas; love you all!
