SUMMER NEWS INTERN
KUCB is looking for a creative, adventurous news intern for a summer of reporting from the westernmost public radio newsroom in the country.
KUCB is a public radio and television station in Unalaska, Alaska. We are owned and operated by Unalaska Community Broadcasting, a non-profit formed in 1985 with the mission to inform, educate, entertain, and engage by providing news and arts and culture programming. Our signal serves a community of about 5,000 people. Our stories, however, have a much broader reach: We’re surrounded by some of the most productive fishing grounds in the country, and we’re in the middle of an international shipping corridor. Our station is located in the Aleutian Islands, the ancestral territories of Unangax̂ People, who have lived in this region more than 9,000 years.
KUCB is committed to local news while providing regional coverage of the Aleutian Chain and Pribilof Islands. You will be one of a handful of journalists based in this thousand-mile region.
The KUCB summer intern will research, write, and produce stories for our daily newscast. They will also host live newscasts and assist with updating our website and social media. The intern is expected to cultivate sources, engage public officials, and maintain professional standards in the conduct of work for the station. Ideal candidate has journalism experience, strong interpersonal skills, and familiarity with audio production.
60-day position offers $3,000 stipend, travel to/from Unalaska, and housing.
