Description:

Ah, intern: A classification synonymous with mild slave labor and impromptu latté runs, it is the rare undergrad who, upon completing an internship, advances beyond indentured servitude in this economy. Scotty Connolly is one of those few: Affectionately dubbed “Deuce” by the WPDH staff, the Marist College communications senior took to the airwaves in September 2008 and has been a fixture on the Coop & Tobin Morning Show ever since. (After his debut, listeners jammed the hotline in an overwhelming show of approval.) In addition to regular duties like answering phones and updating the Web site, he’s made community appearances and even manned the studio while the regular gang was away. And it paid off: Deuce officially became a Cumulus employee last December, responsible for the show’s production, overseeing the new interns, and taking a regular seat on the Morning Show during the week. With his radio-friendly voice, killer wit, and uncanny likeness to Owen Wilson, Deuce seems destined for greatness.
