I just received word of an internship with Maryland Morning on WYPR, the local NPR affiliate. Here is short version of the information. If you would like to know more, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I’ll get you more information.
Are you a fan of public radio and quality journalism? Do you want to help make it happen at WYPR? Maryland Morning with Sheilah Kast is looking for interns. You don’t need experience in public radio, but we do require a basic grasp of news judgment, plus research and writing skills. An ideal candidate would also be interested in the topics covered in Maryland Morning interviews: government, history, science, energy, environment, technology, business, and arts and culture.
While we do assign interns administrative office tasks, we also involve them in most aspects of the program: researching and booking interviews, editing recorded audio, writing copy for hosts, participating in editorial meetings, pitching ideas, gathering tape, and reaching out to listeners on social media. The schedule is flexible, but we are looking for a commitment of 12 to 16 hours per week.
We’re looking for a creative and collegial person with a strong work ethic, the ability to work well both independently and on a team, and a dedication to fair, accurate, and compelling journalism. You can learn a lot working with us—and have a lot of fun, too.
