Applications will close at midnight on Sunday, January 12, 2014. Successful candidates will be notified by Monday, January 20, 2014.
The KFAI News Department airs the Morning Blend locally every weekday from 6 am-8am and produces 3 minute news updates at the top of each hour from 9 am to 5 pm. We also post news stories and interviews to our website, www.kfai.org, and communicate with our listeners and members through Facebook and Twitter.
News interns will assist with the production and support of all these elements.
We will ask interns to research topics, re-write news stories, tweet about programming, update Facebook, archive audio, update news department records, cover press conferences, attend public events and conduct and record interviews with decision makers, opinion leaders and people in the community.
Use of digital recording equipment and sound editing software are useful skills to bring to this internship. Comfort with computer technology and/or a desire to learn are required.
Curiosity about people and events and an interest in public affairs are essential.
Successful interns will be able to write fluently about complicated topics and must be at ease with meeting people, asking questions and speaking into a microphone.
