Meet Meg McCluskey! She’s the Programming intern for Berlin, Worldwide, and Sirius XM and also the IE technical director!
Best way to spend an evening in DC? Grabbing a bite to eat, exploring new neighborhoods, checking out concerts, and doing anything to delay the hour-long commute through rush hour traffic.
What was your reaction when you found out you were offered the NPR internship? It was one of those, “wow, things sometimes really do fall into place” moments. Could not stop smiling the rest of the day, which happened to be the same day I took my senior portrait and bought my cap and gown for graduation.
Favorite thing about interning at NPR? It’s hard to narrow it down, but some top highlights include: Watching the beautiful orchestration between producers, audio engineers and hosts during live tapings, tracking and mixing a performance chat in the nicest studio at NPR, working with many talented people to make Intern Edition happen, attending, photographing and writing about concerts, and getting hands-on experience as part of the production process.
What’s something that you always keep in your purse? iPod.
What’s your ringtone? Favorite season? To celebrate being back in my hometown after finishing school at the University of Michigan, I had to make it “Welcome to DC” by Mambo Sauce. Favorite season: summer. Duh.
Last good book you read? Sound by T.M. Wolf. Really interesting book based on the compositional practices of Hip Hop.
Best thing you did this year? Spent 4 months living and working in Berlin while traveling all across Europe.
Favorite meal? Chocolate.
Favorite TV show? Lost and Breaking Bad.
