Internship

Internship Program

An internship at the Talk Radio News Service is a hands-on experience, where interns are treated like staff members. It is an opportunity to learn digital writing, reporting and editing for a national radio network. The Talk Radio News Service Internship is an excellent way to get a foot in the door in Washington, gain tremendous real-world media experience and to discover how political life ‘Inside the Beltway’ is really lived. The internship involves quite a bit of work, but you will leave with examples of your on-air and written work.

Interns with the Talk Radio News Service participate in the following activities and tasks:

  • Attending daily news briefings, press conferences and hearings on and around Capitol Hill.
  • Gathering and writing news for broadcast on the Talk Radio News Service distribution network.
  • Shooting, editing and producing audio and video news packages for the web.
  • Using social media sites like Twitter and Facebook to share brief news alerts with followers and fans of the Talk Radio News Service.

Examples of Student Work:

LISTEN: “Exploring the Filibuster”   

LISTEN: “Human Terrain Teams”   

The Talk Radio News Service and the University of New Mexico also have partnered to create both Washington Semester and Study Abroad programs for UNM students. Click the following links for information in English and Spanish about those programs.
