WTJU is currently accepting applications for our internship program (Spring 2021)
Audio production / podcasting interns.
Up to 5 students.
Ready to develop some audio production chops and apply those skills? WTJU production interns write for the ear, conduct interviews, edit audio, and produce a variety of segment types for broadcast and podcast. From 45-second interstitial sound portraits to longform interviews to NPR-style features, WTJU interns produce audio content heard by thousands of listeners each week.
No previous experience is required, though it doesn’t hurt. But if you’ve never done media production before, we’ll teach you. The main requirements for these internships are that you are dependable and genuinely curious.
Interns should be available 3-5 hours per week. These are unpaid internships. We’re glad to work with UVA professors on independent study course credit if your department offers it.
Internship work will be predominantly remote, though interns may use WTJU’s production studio, following Covid-19 safety protocols.
Interns will help produce the following:
- 2-3 minute classical musician interview segments that air each weekday at 8:20 a.m.
- 1.5 minute daily news segments that air each weekday at 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.
- 30-minute biweekly local news magazine called Charlottesville Soundboard. Publishes as a podcast on Fridays, airs Saturdays 6 a.m.
- <1 minute audio interstitials that air throughout WTJU’s program schedule
Polish your resume and prepare a cover letter explaining why you’re interested in this internship. Optional: you may also submit writing and/or audio production samples for our consideration, but these really are optional.
