One of our very own reporters, Ryan May, was noticed by a radio station here in Jasper, WIXI 1360 AM, when they read an article he wrote on the Health Care Bill. Impressed with the quality of work and thought put into the article, the station proceeded to call Ryan and set up an interview to hear more of his thoughts on certain issues.
On May 17th as soon as school was over, Ryan had to rush over to the radio station in order to be on time for his interview at four o’clock. During Ryan’s interview, they talked about several things, such as the oil spill, the Health Care Reform, and the current economic state. “Being live on the radio was exhilarating.” Ryan stated, “One of the best parts of the interview was that everyone treated me with respect.”
After going through the interview and even taking call ion questions from from other people, Ryan was invited back to the radio station in the future to talk about Arizona’s New Immigration Laws. Ryan also received an offer from the station to take an internship to which he said, “Deciding between talking about politics or working at Zaxbys is not a hard choice.” Ryan said he is definitely going into politics with a minor in investigative journalism, and a major in political science.
