Blake Simony

Newsroom Intern

Blake Simony is a 2018 summer newsroom intern at Boise State Public Radio. He is currently a Boise State University undergraduate student studying Spanish language and communication with an emphasis in journalism.


Blake wrote for the Boise State student newspaper, The Arbiter, for a semester and continues writing for the paper occasionally. His focus now is on the student radio station, University Pulse Radio, where he was recently hired as the general manager. 


After studying Spanish in Heredia, Costa Rica at Universidad Nacional in 2017, Blake is considering a career as a foreign news correspondent after he graduates in May of 2019. For now, he is continuing to learn and build up his portfolio when he’s not marching in the Blue Thunder Marching Band or riding his longboard down the Greenbelt.
