WUSF News Is Looking For Spring Interns
We're seeking student journalists from around the country who want to learn and work in a professional newsroom.
WUSF Public Media is recruiting college students to be news interns for the spring 2021 semester.
In addition to radio news, digital news, and social media positions, we're adding a new WUSF News / Health News Florida internship.
Applications for all Spring internships are open through Dec. 11.
Interns will work closely with our team of seasoned editors and reporters learning how to report, write and produce stories for radio and online platforms. It’s a place where students are treated like professional journalists from the start and 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.
