On the Media Summer Internship

On The Media is looking for a self-starting intern to join our team while we continue to work remotely.

Interns at NYPR are given a robust internship program with hands-on responsibilities. The goal of our internship program is to provide our interns with substantive, meaningful work experience so that each intern concludes the internship period with demonstrable skills in his/her area of interest, plus knowledge of public radio, in general.


At OTM interns are given the opportunity to learn closely with staff and assist with all aspects of the show’s production. They sit in on editorial meetings, provide research assistance, and perform various administrative tasks involved in the daily running of the office. Over the course of the three months, interns learn basic production skills and are eventually encouraged to produce at least one segment for the show.


The most important qualification for On the Media interns is a working knowledge of the topics we discuss on the show. While we do not expect new interns to have any experience with radio production, some journalism experience is preferred. Basically, we are looking for applicants who are motivated, avid media consumers, and excited about learning.


In order to be eligible for an internship at New York Public Radio you must be currently enrolled in, or have graduated no more than 12 months prior to the start of the internship to which you are applying for, from an accredited undergraduate or graduate program.
