Looking for an Internship at New York Public Radio?
NYPR internships are designed to be a learning experience for sharp, enthusiastic self-starters, with or without radio skills. Our interns do meaningful work across a variety of shows and departments, are an integral part of the team, and assist with all aspects of work. Over the course of the internship term, interns can learn a variety of skills, including reporting, editing, production, field recording, digital audio editing, taping, Pro Tools, mixing promos, planning live events, research and more.
In light of the anticipated timeline of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to suspend our summer internship program. We need to act with an abundance of caution regarding health concerns that are likely to carry over into the early summer. We don’t yet know when NYPR employees will be returning to work and we feel that a remote work experience won’t set the summer interns up for success.
If you applied for an internship with us you will hear from us shortly. Thank you and come back in July to apply for our fall session.
The following dates are subject to change:
Internship starts: September 3, 2020
Internship ends: December 20, 2020
Applications will open for our fall session around or about July 12, 2020
Who Should Apply?
Any student (undergraduate or graduate) or person who has graduated no more than 12 months prior to the start of the internship period to which he/she is applying. Interns must be authorized to work in the United States.
