WUSF News is looking for student journalists ready for the opportunity to work in a professional newsroom. We're taking applications for a number of internships for the Summer and Fall 2019 semesters, including the Stephen Noble Internship - a semester-long chance to develop into a public radio reporter - and a new visual news internship.
(Update 4/9 10 a.m. -- Deadlines on applications have been extended)
Interns will work closely with our team of seasoned reporters learning how to research, write and produce stories for radio and online platforms. It’s place where students are treated like a real journalist from the start, assigned stories that matter to millions of Tampa Bay area residents.
It’s where you'll discover how public media tries to serve its audience differently from commercial news organizations.
The internships WUSF is looking to fill are:
The Stephen Noble/WUSF News Internship – A multi-day paid internship where a student will learn how to research, write, produce and report for WUSF Radio and WUSFNews.org. In addition to daily news assignments, the Noble intern will produce a pair of University Beat reports. Students from ANY university are welcome to apply for this job.
During the summer semester, this is a five-day a week (40 hours) position. During the fall semester, it’s a two-day a week (15 hours) position.
The deadline to apply is April 16.
To apply for either internship, please go to USF's employment website at: https://www.usf.edu/work-at-usf/careers/index.aspx. Once there, please click on the "Access Careers@USF" link.
