As a point of clarification, I was a sports communications major, not not sports management.
I interned every summer at WBOB, and came out and the best job I could get was the overnight producer at the local sports station.
Now I'm happy for this because I met a lot of people here on Redszone because I had a lot of time between 12AM and 6AM.
Now if I could offer some more advice, absolutely work hard to getting jobs, intern anywhere you get a chance. Most important, do not just intern at one spot. Go to different stations, go to different markets. If you only go to one place, and they don't have any openings when you graduate you're screwed.(In my case the station changed formats two weeks before I graduated. oops.)
