Winter / Spring Intern - Here and Now
Full Time Unpaid Internship
Winter/Spring 2019: January 7th- April 19th
We're looking for a smart, fast-thinking intern well versed in current events and eager to learn the ways of NPR.
You'll be reporting to NPR's deputy managing editors, who shepherd the network's daily news gathering operation. Most of your time will be spent assisting the Washington producer for Here & Now, our daily midday news program from WBUR in Boston. This is not a fetch-coffee-and-bagels internship. You’ll be expected to perform at a high level under deadline pressure – and love it!
Duties include researching a wide variety of topics, booking on-air guests, and producing content for radio and digital platforms.
Accuracy is a must. A keen intellectual curiosity and creative stripe are highly desired. Experience in a newsroom or in audio production (or both) are pluses.
Please do not apply for more than 3 internships.
