|Company Name||Studio 360|
|Date Posted||March 4, 2013|
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 rolled in school.
Interns assist in all aspects of producing Studio 360. They sit in on editorial meetings, gather research, pitch ideas, collect materials for the website, and perform various tasks involved in running the office. Over the course of the term, interns learn fundamental radio skills (including audio editing) and will work with staff mentors on producing segments for the show.
You must be able to commit to the assigned schedule as well as attend orientation and occasional NYPR intern events, regardless of whether they take place on the day you are normally scheduled.
We are looking for applicants who are voraciously curious about a wide variety of subjects, and who are enthusiastic learners with an ability to work independently. We prefer some journalism or writing experience, but we do not require new interns to have experience with radio production.
How to Apply:
Please submit a resume and cover letter explaining why you would like to help produce Studio 360. 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, we invite you to submit samples of your work, including writing or audio samples. Audio samples must be streamed off of a website.
Deadline: March 22
