WBUR Radio, Boston’s NPR station, is accepting applications for their Fellowship program which will run from January through December 2024. To apply for the Newsroom Fellowship program, visit https://www.wbur.org/inside/newsroom-fellowship-application.
Fellows embed in different parts of the newsroom, rotating approximately every three months, maximizing exposure to the many aspects of public media:
Launched in 2020, the WBUR Newsroom Fellowship is a yearlong program for journalists eager to pursue a career in public media. Applicants should be recent graduates or early-career journalists who are ambitious, hold a passion for public radio, are looking to build reporting and production skills, and have a demonstrated experience with and commitment to advancing issues of underrepresented voices in public radio.
The fellowship provides hands-on training in every aspect of public media journalism. Fellows develop their skills under the guidance of WBUR’s editors and producers and have opportunities to work alongside newsroom journalists. Fellows are active members of the WBUR newsroom, involved in the production of news at every level — from morning editorial meetings to field reporting, to story mixing and publishing.
With this fellowship, WBUR seeks to cultivate the talent and develop the skills of emerging journalists so that they may grow in their careers and become the next generation of reporters and newsroom leaders.
