Our WLRN interns come to us from all over the country in hopes of dipping their toes in the radio reporting world. What they usually get is full immersion; into the many sights and sounds of South Florida's culture, quirks and food! This summer we were lucky enough to host four wonderful reporters from Tallahassee, Chicago and Miami. In their own words, they explain what it was like to get a taste of local living.

Miami said goodbye Wednesday evening to one of the pioneers of the craft beer movement in the city and did  it the way he would have liked it: by gathering at his beloved brewery and raising a pint (or two) in his name. 

Piero Rodriguez, one of the founding brewers at MIA Beer Company , passed away last weekend in a car accident.  Brewers from around South Florida and beyond have been posting their condolences online.
