WPSU-FM, an NPR affiliate station, offers a unique opportunity to advance the career development of aspiring radio professionals through a paid internship. The Zimmerman Internship at WPSU Radio will allow you to choose the career track you find most interesting and will tailor your internship to that path. Your options are: 1) a journalism track, working with the staff of the WPSU-FM News Department; 2) a broadcast engineering track, working with our chief engineer; or 3) a sales/marketing/promotions track, working with the director of station development. While most of your time in this 14-week internship will be spent working in your selected track, you will also have the opportunity to interact with staff in other areas of station operations so that you experience the breadth of work involved in running a radio station. Strong priority for the Zimmerman Internship is given to students active with student radio station WKPS. Spring semester - 10 hours/week for 14 weeks at $8.50/hour. Please submit cover letter and resume; in your cover letter, please indicate the career track in which you are interested and how you anticipate this internship might advance your career goals.
