Elliot Rodriguez

WLRN Fall 2021 Intern

Elliot Rodriguez is a senior at Florida Atlantic University majoring in multimedia studies.

He first discovered his love for journalism when he came to FAU after playing baseball in college. The fact that as a journalist he's able to provide and help the world, essentially, made him want to purse the career.

He started his journalism path by writing for his school paper and later created the entertainment section of the paper, where he is also the editor. In addition to the newspaper, he is also the radio station manager for the university.

He is a member of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists, and a 3x recipient for the Provost Certificate of Recognition for Publishing.

He's currently applying to graduate schools such like NYU and Columbia. He hopes to be an international music/entertainment reporter post-graduation.

In his spare time he likes to read and listen to stories on his favorite artists such as Madlib, J Dilla, MF DOOM and Nujabes. Along with other artists that are part of one of his favorite record labels, Stones Throw Records. He also loves to dig in the crates for records to sample and make music in his spare time.

During this internship he hopes to make connections with the wonderful staff at WLRN and his colleagues. Along with sharpening his skills as a broadcast journalist and reporter.
