WUSF Public Media is now accepting applications for Information Internships for the Fall 2022 semester.
All positions will be paid, including internships focused on radio and digital news, as well as on our social media platforms.
Interns must be currently enrolled in the college as undergraduate or graduate students.
They will work closely with our team of seasoned writers and journalists to learn how to report, write and produce stories for radio and online platforms. It’s a place where students are treated like professional journalists from the start, and are assigned stories that matter to millions of Tampa Bay area residents.
This is also where they will discover how public media tries to serve their audience differently than commercial news outlets. With elections taking place in November, students interested in political news coverage should consider applying.
The application deadline is by midnight, June 29 for the following:
