During this reporting period, Station WGOW-FM hosted two student interns: both from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. These interns were supervised by our Afternoon Show Host and assisted the Programming Department with preparation for the afternoon show as well as joining on-air hosts in studio during broadcasts.

Cumulus Media of Chattanooga also offers a job-shadowing program for high school and college students.  Department managers in the sales, marketing, news and programming departments arrange for students to visit the station and interact with account executives, on-air, and promotions staff to observe those staff members at work and gain insight and skills regarding careers in the broadcasting industry.

This is an ongoing program that Cumulus Media of Chattanooga offers throughout the calendar year.
