The investigative unit intern will assist with investigating and conducting research for Michigan Radio’s investigative reporter. The internship will require applicants to handle tasks involved in the everyday operation of a radio newsroom, with a special emphasis on document review and FOIA activity. The internship is research intensive but other duties may include collecting and editing audio, writing news copy, and attending press conferences.
Internship applicants should have an interest in journalism. In addition to good research and writing skills, applicants should also be able to work under deadline pressures. We are looking for someone willing to work twenty (20) to twenty-five (25) hours per week. The hours are flexible depending on the applicant’s own schedule and the dynamics of the daily news calendar. This is a paid internship position, available to work-study students and/or non-work study students.
If interested, please send a copy of your resume and cover letter to News Director Vincent Duffy: firstname.lastname@example.org
