Hey folks. NPR's State of the Re:Union is looking for interns to begin in late November – about 10 hours/week, work from anywhere. Great for students or anyone who wants to get a foot in the door with a unique, creative show. Details below, and spread the word!
Please pass this along to educators, students, colleagues, etc. Thank you!
State of the Re:Union (SOTRU) is a dynamic NPR show that combines hour-long radio episodes with short videos, photography, music and blog posts to reach audiences online and over the airwaves. For each episode, SOTRU travels to a different American city or town to tell stories about what makes community there. Our mission is to bring American life into focus, examining the things that divide us as well as the ties that bind us together. We currently air on more than 200 stations across the U.S.
SOTRU currently has several openings for interns for our next production season, November 20 – April 15. Duties include transcribing interviews, story research, pre-interviewing, and multimedia production. Interns are invited to listen in on editorial calls with our host, editor and radio producers as we shape each episode, story by story.
To be considered for this internship, you should have a strong creative background, solid writing skills and be able to take direction. Self-starters who value attention to detail have particularly enjoyed interning with us. Audio and video editing skills are very welcome. Our staff works remotely, and you can too; people anywhere in the U.S. can apply. This internship is unpaid, and we generally ask for about 10 hours a week, sometimes more during busy
