Interns at NYPR are given a robust internship program with hands-on responsibilities. The goal of our internship program is to provide our interns with a substantive, meaningful work experience so that each intern concludes the internship period with demonstrable skills in their area of interest, plus knowledge of public radio, in general. Interns play a vital role in NYPR s daily operations in almost every department of our organization from the Newsroom and our daily, weekly and weekend programs, to Marketing, Development, and Engineering. Radiolab is looking for interns who are passionate about radio and storytelling to assist with the production of our show.

We are looking for applicants who are voraciously curious about a wide variety of subjects, and who are enthusiastic learners with an ability to work independently. We prefer some journalism or writing experience, but we do not require new interns to have experience with radio production.

What your internship will entail:

  • Participate in many aspects of the show's production.
  • Participate in editorial meetings, provide research assistance, and perform a range of administrative tasks involved in the daily running of the office.
  • The opportunity to learn basic audio production skills
  • The opportunity to pitch their own story ideas, and receive feedback on their work.
  • Requirements:

  • Voracious curiosity about a wide variety of subjects
  • Enthusiastic learners with an ability to work independently
  • We prefer some journalism or writing experience, but we do not require new interns to have experience with radio production.
  • If you would like to be considered for this role you must submit:

    We require three documents: 1) a resume, 2) a brief cover letter explaining why you want to be a Radiolab intern, and 3) a set of answers to the following questions:

  • Describe a moment from Radiolab that didn't work for you. Tell us why and describe what you would have done differently.
  • Imagine you re invited to pitch a story idea at our next staff meeting. Give us a one-paragraph pitch (we want the elevator version something short and sweet to prick up our ears.) In addition to describing the idea itself, tell us who could tell the story or explain the idea who would you track down for an interview?
  • Tell us the best thing you ve read, heard, or seen this week (give us a few sentences.) We re looking for the story you ll bring up at dinner with your friends tonight, or the one you d tell at a party this weekend. It can be an article that blew your mind, a video that cracked you up, or something unbelievable that happened to you or one of your friends.
  • Please include your full name in the header or footer of every page of your application. Thanks!


    Any student (undergraduate or graduate) or person who has graduated no more than 12 months prior to the start of the internship period to which he/she is applying. Because this is an paid internship, interns must be authorized to work in the United States.

    Interns are eligible to receive college credit.
