I’m happy to serve as an intern supervisor if the individual needs to get college credit for the summer internship. Interns please note that both full-time partners in the firm, Dr. Michelle Morris and Ric Morris, are ACU alumni and love working with ACU students and grads.

Immediate opportunity with NPR in Alaska

0 Commentsby   |  12.03.14  |  Uncategorized

News Director Dave Bendinger was recently on campus, and offered JMC majors this great adventure:
Internship opportunity at KDLG Public Radio in Dillingham, Alaska:  We are a small but robust NPR member station located in the heart of Bristol Bay, Alaska. Dillingham has a yearly population just over 2,000, but our broadcast range carries us to villages near and far. For most, we are the only radio station on the dial, and the only source of daily local news, weather, music, and announcements.
What will you get to do? Report, of course. You’ll be tasked with gathering local news, primarily for broadcast on our airwaves and publishing on our website. Local news can be voicers, wraps, and packages, and we’ll send them, at a minimum, to our fellow stations in Bethel, Unalaska, Nome, and Kodiak. We also are a member of the Alaska Public Radio Network, which produces a 30 minute statewide evening newscast and several statewide newscasts in the morning, meaning your material can/will air all over Alaska.
What else? We partner with The Bristol Bay Times weekly newspaper, as well as the Alaska Dispatch (our state’s largest paper), and even KTVA, the CBS affiliate in Anchorage. So the sky’s the limit. Write articles, take good photos, get published in print.
The exposure and networking that can be done through KDLG is probably hard to beat. You’ll be working, reporting, not just making copies and coffee. The wild, rugged north has much to offer the intrepid newsperson / storyteller; come give it your all!

KDLG News Director
