It's another case of a BizComm alum mentoring one of our current students! Senior Taylor Festerman (left) is thrilled to be working in promotions at WXCY country radio under the mentorship of Kelly Taylor, the promotions coordinator and a former BizComm herself! Kelly's own internship at the station led to her job in promotions there, and she is happily sharing her knowledge with the new intern. Promotions involves lots of contact with fans, and Taylor is using all her interpersonal skills to make a success of her work at WXCY.
