Internship With FM News 101.9

Mass communications major? Interested in broadcast, reporting, and/or radio? Well, there’s a great opportunity awaiting you!

FM News 101.9 New York is always looking for smart, ambitious students for their internship program within the news department. These internships are full-time, unpaid, and are given in exchange for credit from the student’s college or university. FM News 101.9 requires a letter on school letterhead from a faculty member, indicating that the school acknowledges the student is taking part in the internship program and will receive college credit. Interns will be given training in the following skills:

Writing: Students will be trained in writing for broadcast, and depending on their proficiency, their news copy may be used on air.

Phone Interviews: Students will be trained to call news makers, digitally edit the interview, and write around the cuts they edit. These cuts may also be used on air.

Audio: Students will be trained to take feeds from reporters, listen critically for any errors, and place them appropriately within the Burli operating system used in the FM News 101.9 newsroom.

Students will also get the opportunity to go out with a reporter and observe them at work.

All interns must take a writing test before being accepted into the program.
