Internship Opportunities at Prairie Public

Radio News Internships (Bismarck, ND or Fargo, ND)

This is a one-semester, unpaid news internship in Bismarck. The intern will work under the direction of the News Director and in association with other news staff. The intern will be given a “real world” experience in news, so that by the end of the internship, the person will be able to report and write news stories, as well as operate the control board, newsroom software, and possibly anchor newscasts. 

Prairie Public covers statewide news, including state government. Hours per week are flexible, depending on the number of credits taken. Up to full time is possible. The interns will be selected through an interview process, and candidates must submit a cover letter, resume and recording. Students should have some background or course work in journalism. 

The intern will be assigned duties by the News Director, and those duties may include coverage of scheduled events, telephone interviews, on-site interviews, writing and rewriting news copy, and production of voicers and wraps. Some work may be for television and digital, as well as radio. We will assist the intern in preparing audition recording based on their work. We will reimburse expenses.
