NHPR is New Hampshire’s independent and trusted source for news and information, and the state’s largest radio news service. Based in Concord, the state’s capital and political hub, NHPR’s newsroom, digital team, and original programs consistently earn national recognition for their in-depth reporting and production. NHPR is the winner of the 2015 and 2017 national Edward R. Murrow Award for overall excellence.
News Internship, All Things Considered
The News Intern works directly with the local host of All Things Considered to produce a daily afternoon news program. You will generate ideas for stories and interviews both in the studio and in the field, book guests, research and write scripts, edit recorded interviews, and prepare those stories/interviews for publication at NHPR.org. You will actively participate in our newsroom's daily editorial meetings, learn the various types of reporting we do as well as how to produce a news story, journalistic ethics, and best practices.
Radio Production Internship, The Exchange
The Exchange, New Hampshire's only locally produced live call-in talk show, has been on the air for more than 20 years. The show's focus is on New Hampshire news and public policy. It provides a daily forum for listeners to call in and speak directly to elected officials and experts in a variety of fields. You will work alongside the Exchange team and participate in daily editorial meetings. Responsibilities include research assistance, production work, call screening during our live show, and other duties as needed. There is the possibility of increased responsibility over the course of the internship, including assisting in the production of several shows under the guidance of the staff. Because The Exchange is a morning show, your day will typically start 7:30 am.
News interns will be brought into the middle of the news gathering at NHPR. You will take part in our editorial meetings, learn the various types of reporting we do, and learn how to produce a news story. You will be expected to pick up journalistic ethics and best practices and you will spend a fair amount of time away from the station, reporting stories. In addition to producing radio you will also work with the digital department as we present our news on our website and on social media. You will work regular hours and you should have a reliable car.
Creative Production Unit Internship, Word of Mouth
The intern with Word of Mouth has the opportunity to play an integral role on the team that produces this multi-segmented program. Each episode of the show includes a mix of interviews and features, many of which are investigations of questions submitted by listeners to our “Only in New Hampshire” series. The intern's tasks and opportunities will be varied and challenging, and will be designed to offer a meaningful experience as a public radio producer. They will work with producers to find good stories; pre-interview potential guests; assist with field
recordings; and determine how best to tell stories for broadcast. They will also work on our digital platforms to engage with the audience through social media and share stories on our website.
We are looking for candidates with excellent writing skills, a strong interest in news and public policy, the ability to work independently and efficiently, an interest in public media, strong attention to detail, initiative and curiosity.
