One of WYRZ’s missions is to help aspiring broadcasters gain real world experience in a working radio station. Here they learn some of the ins and outs of the radio industry as well as observing how things work from behind the scenes. WYRZ also provides our interns with an opportunity to actually get behind the microphone and host their own show!
John Leslie is host of “The Intern Hour” airing from 7 to 8 P.M. Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays on 98.9 FM and WYRZ.org.
He graduated with Bachelors of Science in marketing and operations from Indiana State University 2013 and Bachelor of Arts in communication from Purdue University 2017. John has since pursued philanthropic endeavours with Conner Prairie Living History Museum, Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Habitat for Humanity.
Leslie’s experience as professional trombonist in rock, jazz, sports and concert bands stems from an early love of music by rock bands including The Beatles, Pink Floyd, AC/DC, David Bowie, The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin and Ozzy Osbourne.
