I'm trying to figure out what kind of clothes to wear for my internship at a radio station. I noticed some people wearing shorts and some in khakis. Any suggestions for what I should be wearing?

Start by checking with your supervisor. Different departments within a company may have separate dress codes. If the radio station has an employee handbook, that may outline the dress code as well.

It's great that you're concerned about appropriateness.  If you have the opportunity, prior to starting, ask the person that you will be reporting to.  If you have a sense of casualness, you can't go wrong with khaki's and a polo for the first day or so until you find out what the culture really is.

I suggest speaking with your manager or HR representative to see what dress code they have if any.  What ever you wear you want to keep in mind that regardless of the work you are doing you will be representing the company to potential clients, current customers, and most importantly yourself.  Choose what you are comfortable in, and also conveys a sense of professionalism.  Unless otherwise noted khaki's, a polo shirt and good shoes will not steer you wrong in a causual environment until you can test the wardrobe waters for yourself.
