Eric “The Intern” Spencer started at Backyard Broadcasting in the summer of 2006 as an Intern. That internship led to him getting hired part-time as a “weekend warrior” that falling fall while attending Lycoming College his senior year.
His love of radio started off at Lycoming as a DJ on the college station 91.7 WRLC “The Thunder”. He hosted a weekly country music showed called “Spud Country.” His freshman year he had the opportunity to travel with the Williamsport Crosscutters and broadcasted the away games on the station.
After graduation, in 2007, he continued working on the WILQ part time on Saturday afternoons then eventually to mid-days. He would also fill in during the week when needed, especially getting up at 3am to do the news.
Since December of 2014, Eric worked at the front desk as the Receptionist, or as some around the station called him Eric “The Man-ceptionist.” He was the smiling face who would first greet you if you came in to pick up a prize or called into the office. Now, he has been promoted as the host of the mid-day show on WILQ. However, it seems he won’t be able to drop being “The Intern” anytime soon.
Growing up in Montgomery, he loved listening to the Q and dreamed of working there one day. Well, that dream has come true and is thankful for it. And is thankful that you listen during the mid-days and make requests during the Subway Subs All Request Lunch Hour.
