News Internship Application

Applications for Fall 2019 are now closed. If you'd like to be considered for Spring 2019 (January - April), please fill out the application below.

The KCRW News Internship is a great part-time opportunity for students who are pursuing a major, minor or graduate degree in journalism and want hands-on experience in daily journalism, broadcast news, audio storytelling and some of the technical aspects of radio production. The ideal candidates must be strong writers, quick learners and good collaborators.

This particular internship is unpaid and we ask for a 10-hour/ week commitment. We do offer opportunities to pitch freelance stories and work with an editor to create an air-able story. If you pursue an intern position, it's important that you take the commitment seriously. The internship lasts about 3 months, at a time commitment of 10-15 hours a week.
