WUSF News Is Looking For Spring Interns

Oct 23, 2019

WUSF News is once again seeking student journalists who want to work and learn in a professional newsroom. We're taking applications for a number of internships for the Spring 2020 semester, including the Stephen Noble/WUSF News Internship - a semester-long chance to develop into a public radio reporter.

UPDATE: All internships now taking applications through midnight, Nov. 7.

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 a 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.

WUSF is looking to fill the following internships:

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.

This is a two-day a week (15 hours) position.

The deadline to apply is midnight Nov. 7.

To apply for the 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.

The position is listed as "WUSF News Internship" (job 23427).

WUSF Radio News Internship – Similar to the Noble Internship, the WUSF Radio News intern will learn how to research, write, produce and report for WUSF 89.7 News and WUSFNews.org. In addition to daily news assignments, the intern will produce a pair of University Beat reports. Students from ANY university are welcome to apply for this job.
