News/Athens News Matters

Interns in the newsroom have an opportunity to contribute content, written or voiced, to WUGA FM's news products, including daily newscasts and our weekly public affairs program, Athens News Matters.

Many of our interns have gone on to successful careers in broadcasting at NPR and its affiliate stations. Working with our news producers and reporters, interns work on scripts for news stories, conduct research, work with anchors to prepare them for interviews, edit audio, and with exceptionally qualified candidates, report, produce, and voice their own work.

The ideal candidate for this internship should have strong writing skills, a familiarity with how to write journalistically, and have a proven ability to meet deadlines.


Develop a detailed understanding of the operational functions at an NPR-affiliated radio station. Provide hands-on support in preparing program materials, conducting program historical research, observing station staff in preparing automation systems for error-free, professional-sounding broadcasts. Acquire detailed understanding of the broadcast process. This is an on-site internship.
