Knox Community High School senior and WKVI programming intern Makayla Dillard is one of six Indiana Broadcasters Association Scholarship winners chosen from around the state from a field of 140 applicants. She plans to major in telecommunications at Ball State University.
“I want to be an on-air personality. My ultimate goal would be to be like Ellen DeGeneres and have a talk show, or maybe like Howard Stern, but not as vulgar,” she says.
Makyala adds she’s learned a lot about multiple facets of the radio business while interning at WKVI. She plans to continue at the radio station until she leaves for college next fall and promises to take our telephone calls when she’s rich and famous. On behalf of the entire WKVI staff, congratulations.
