Do you regularly refer friends with existential questions to This American Life episodes or begin conversations with “I heard this story on NPR…”? Are you the first to volunteer when something just needs to get done? Do you want an award-winning team to show you the ropes of radio and digital journalism? If yes – and you’re a student with designs on a media career – you might just be the News Intern KERA is looking for.
You’d be helping with production of our interview show Think, where host Krys Boyd picks the brains of documentarians, authors, politicians and influencers. And you’d be supporting the newsroom as local stories for Morning Edition and All Things Considered come together each day. We’re hoping to find a solid writer with some audio and/or video editing experience – and who could stay with us through the next semester.
Requirements: Enrollment as a full-time undergrad with freshman year completed, intent to complete internship for class credit (unpaid), available 10-20 hours a week, some knowledge of public radio, a knack for news and discourse and the samples (published stories, blog posts, schoolwork, etc.) to show it.
Send your resume, samples and a pitch for Think to firstname.lastname@example.org.
