KZUM Seeking Multimedia Interns for 2017

KZUM Seeking Multimedia Interns for 2017

KZUM is seeking part-time editorial and multimedia interns to assist Nebraska’s only community radio station in developing our online presence.

We are working toward becoming a resource, a hub if you will, for all things local that are happening right here in our ever-growing, vibrant city. We see kzum.org becoming a site that is visited daily, informing our community what is happening in arts, music and culture right here in Lincoln, all while streaming KZUM live.

KZUM currently broadcasts 150 hours of original, locally produced programming each week thanks to over 90 volunteers. You’ll hear sounds ranging from blues to punk, hip hop to folk, rock to electronic and much more, plus syndicated shows like Democracy Now!, Music City Roots, and Beale Street Caravan to name a few. We also have shows focused on community matters, environmental issues, health, gardening, pet care, and human services. Plus, culturally driven talk and music programs broadcasted in English, Spanish, and Vietnamese.

We live in a day and age where people are always connected, looking for the latest and most up-to-date information. KZUM is working toward providing this not only on the airwaves, but via our website and social media. This is where you come in. We are looking for people who are passionate, who not only can see, but feel a moment happening, with the willingness to dive in to capture it, visually and verbally. One who is a multitasker, a go-getter, can handle the pressure and excitement of what can come next. Candidates should be able to work under strict and demanding deadlines while genuinely being engaged in their surroundings. We want you to take pride in what you are doing and recognize that you are single-handedly helping our organization develop in areas that will lead to the station’s overall visibility and sustainability.

In return, you will receive public relations and online outreach experience, opportunity to work hands on with multiple public figures within Lincoln’s creative and professional community, both in a deadline-driven environment, as well as the opportunity to develop your personal portfolio.

Summer: 15-30 hours per week
