woodcutquotesleftMarfa Public Radio (KRTS, 93.5 FM) is pleased to welcome three summer interns to the station.

David Leonnig, Tracy Maline, and Rebecca Potts will spend this summer assisting station activities, producing radio programming,and learning first-hand how a community-supported, noncommercial radio station operates.

Leonnig is a first year graduate student in the Arts & Technology Program at the University of Texas at Dallas. He’ll be involved in increasing the radio station’s web presence, including the use of new media.

Maline grew up in the area, and is a graduate of Fort Davis High School. This May, she received her Associates Degree in Sound Technology from South Plains College in Levelland, Texas. Maline’s primary interests include audio production. After the summer, she’ll begin pursuing a degree in Radio, Television and Film at the University of North Texas.

Potts, a San Antonio native, is currently a sophomore at Pomona College in Claremont, California. She is studying Comparative Literature and Media Studies. This will be her first time working in radio.

KRTS is celebrating their arrival this Friday evening with a reception from 5-7 p.m. at the Wine Bar at the Marfa Guest Quarters. The public is encouraged to come out, meet the new interns, and mingle with friends and neighbors. The Quarters has generously agreed to donate $1 from every glass of wine sold to KRTS. All proceeds will support public radio in Far West Texas. The Wine Bar at the Marfa Guest Quarters is located at 109 W. San Antonio Street in Marfa.

KRTS offers student internships on a quarterly basis. The application deadline for Fall 2009 internships is August 1. Interested persons are encouraged to contact the station or visit www.marfapublicradio.org for more information. woodcutquotesright

    I like Marfa Public Radio and all that but in this red-blooded American’s opinion they need to re-name NPR National Politburo Radio! This has a very bad slant for Liberals just like CNN (and if you are not familiar with this bias I recommend redaing the book ‘Bias’.) I am all for Freedom of Expression, but I sometimes wonder at how liberal the media is (especially Daniel Shore, Nina Totenburg and Carl Castle.) Just saying thanks and keep up the good work!!! Big fan of Border Blasters, Big Fan!!! I especially like to listen to it while ‘cruising’ in my car.

    I do not think there is a Liberal slant to NPR. For instance, they zealously reported on the Clinton impeachment hearings. I think that NPR is the nation’s best news source. I also think that it is less biased toward sensationalism than much other journalism in the media. Frankly, a bias towards sensationalism is more detrimental to informing the public in the long term.
