News Internship Application

If you’d like to be considered for Winter/Spring of 2022, please fill out the application below. This application period closes on December 6th, with a planned start date of mid-January 2022.

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 or with a small stipend, depending on the candidate, and we ask for a 12-hour/ week commitment. We do offer opportunities to collect clips of stories for air and digital. This internship will be remote for some or all of the term due to the pandemic, but may require some on-site training. If you pursue an intern position, it's important that you take the commitment seriously.
