Summer News Intern in Alaska’s Aleutian Islands

KUCB public radio is seeking applicants for a two-month summer internship at our station in Unalaska, Alaska. Start and end dates are flexible. 

We’re looking for someone to work full-time as a reporter/producer, with opportunities for hosting live news broadcasts and other station duties. The intern will produce several radio pieces per week on a variety of topics. Stories will air locally on our FM station and sometimes on statewide or national news. Previous reporting experience is strongly preferred. Radio/audio editing experience is a plus. 

Unalaska is a town of about 4,300 people in the Aleutian Island chain. We’re located about 800 miles southwest of Anchorage. The town is a major North American fishing port and a jumping-off point for offshore drilling and research in the Arctic. Outside of work, there will be plenty of opportunities for adventure — camping, fishing, boating, hiking and more. 

KUCB provides basic housing, round-trip airfare from within the United States and a $2,000 stipend.

To apply, submit a resume and cover letter to Lauren Rosenthal at jobs@kucb.org by April 3.

A Apprenticeship position, starting June 1st, 2015, in Unalaska, AK.

Posting expires: April 17th, 2015.

Studio 360 Intern/Volunteer

Studio 360 is looking for sharp, enthusiastic self-starters, with or without radio skills, to participate in the program as interns and volunteers.

We accept Interns who are currently enrolled in school.

We also welcome Volunteers, no longer in school, who want to explore radio and multimedia production.

Responsibilities

Studio 360’s internship is a hands-on experience. Interns and volunteers sit in on editorial meetings, gather research, pitch ideas, collect materials for the website, and learn a variety of tasks involved in producing a weekly program. Over the course of the term, interns and volunteers gain fundamental radio skills (including audio editing) and will assist staff mentors with producing segments for the show.

Qualifications

There are no specific criteria except a passion for the arts and popular culture, and a fascination with creative use of media. Study or experience in journalism and/or radio production is valuable, but not required. Past volunteers have come from a wide variety of backgrounds, including professionals from other fields making career changes. In short, we are looking for applicants who are motivated, avid cultural consumers, and who are excited to learn.

All interns and volunteers must be legally authorized to work in the United States.

Terms last about four months and require at least a 21-hour commitment for interns (full-time interns are preferred); volunteers are asked to participate for as many hours as they are able. The internship takes place at WNYC in Lower Manhattan. There is a $12 stipend per day. Terms coincide with the academic calendar: roughly September-December, January-April, and May-August.

How to Apply

Send us a resume and cover letter explaining why you would like to intern or volunteer at Studio 360 and what you hope to gain from your experience. Tell us about your culture diet — favorite magazines, books, TV shows, trends you’re following, movies, music, etc. Briefly describe any relevant journalism, broadcasting, or other media skills; familiarity with office software; and your research experience.

We also ask that you specifically address the following:
1. Describe two of your favorite Studio 360 segments and why you liked them.
2. Describe one or two segments or shows that you think were less successful. What would you have done to make them stronger?
3. Suggest two story ideas (one paragraph each) for Studio 360. These can be pitches for simple “host-interviews-guest” segments, or for longer reported pieces with multiple voices. In addition to describing the idea itself, you should also include ideas for voices in the piece/interview.

Although it is not required, you are welcome to submit samples of your work, including writing or audio samples. Audio samples must be posted online for streaming.
