KERA, 90.1 public radio based in Dallas, has two openings for interns this summer. Deadline to apply is April 25. Below are the requirements from producer Lyndsay Knecht, who encourages you to CC her (email@example.com) when you send in your application materials.
Do you regularly relate events of your daily life to segments from This American Life 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 Production Intern that KERA is looking for. You’d be helping with production of our interview show Think, where host Krys Boyd picks the brains of guests like Mo Rocca, Julia Sweeney and Oliver Sacks. And you’d be supporting the newsroom as local stories for Morning Edition and All Things Considered come together each day.
Requirements: Enrollment as a full-time undergrad with freshman year completed, intent to complete internship for class credit, 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.
Are you a cub reporter with the heart of an audiophile and a knack for thoughtful social media? Are you good with a camera? Are you ready to use what you’re learning in J-school and give our newsroom new energy? Then we want to meet you. KERA 90.1 is looking for a Reporting Intern to work with our award-winning news team. You’d write, photograph, blog, Tweet, Instagram and contribute to the radio. You’d also help manage equipment, which is an excellent way to learn field recording. We’re hoping to find a student who can stay with us for two semesters. So if you’re in it to win it, read on.
Requirements: Enrollment as a full-time undergrad with freshman year completed, intent to complete the internship for class credit, 10-20 hours a week available, knowledge of public radio, a love of news and discourse and the samples (published stories, blog posts, schoolwork, etc.) to show it.
