My name is Dayna Haffenden and I am a Multimedia Journalist from New York City.
I landed my first internship at Cumulus Media because of my experience as a writer for Hunter College’s online publication. I proved to Cumulus Media, that as a digital intern, I wanted to stay and grow. After three months of interning for Cumulus and working with the four different stations: 77 WABC, NASH 94.7, Radio 103.9, and 95.5 PLJ, my boss began discussing the possibility of promoting me as the new social media manager. I gathered everything I learned from Cumulus and interned for HOT 97, where I was exposed to all aspects of radio and quite a bit of writing.
Shortly after completing my internship with HOT 97, I was offered another internship, this time for Vibe Magazine. I had the opportunity to write over sixty articles for Vibe and publish an interview piece for Oprah Winfrey’s “O’s Girls” special. After my work with Vibe, I served as the Entertainment Writer for AtlantaBlackStar.com, a News Writer for MusicTimes.com, and an Entertainment Writer for Kontrol Magazine. Currently, I am a News Writer for XXL Magazine.
