    I have been working at Clear Channel as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I got to meet celebrities, gain valuable experience, make connections, and learn from those who are already where I would like to be.

    Cons

    A lot of the jobs have been cut into one person doing several different things. Also, more radio programs have become more automated making it less interesting to listen to and shutting out jobs for those who would like to apply as on-air personalities. Those jobs are rarely open. Also, some positions are high turnover positions, and they are always cutting budgets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If this company doesn't want to lose so much money, maybe they should invest in a Urban contemporary Christian Radio Station. There are so many young adults and teens who enjoy gospel hip-hop and rhythm & Praise gospel music, but this market is ignored almost altogether by this company. While all of the other media mediums have gotten the hint that Christian media is what's hot right now and bringing in the most viewership thus making the most money. They are losing out on too much advertising dollars and will continue to cut budgets. I interned in Chicago, IL.
