Live Wire Radio is now accepting applications for the 2023-2024 Live Wire Production Fellowship. Live Wire seeks to bolster its team with voices from communities that aren’t typically represented in radio. Areas of under-representation may include—but are not limited to—race, ethnicity, economic background, sexual orientation, and disability. Live Wire seeks to find an eager, curious, and driven person to join its production team beginning in the fall of 2023.

Live Wire is an independently produced radio show, recorded live in Portland, OR, and broadcast on nearly 200 public radio stations nationwide with approximately 275,000 weekly listeners.

Live Wire’s Production Fellowship will be a remote position requiring 20 hours per week for a 10-month tenure. The fellow will be mentored by Live Wire’s production team and will receive on-the-job training, a membership to the Association for Independents in Radio, plus a paid trip to Portland to attend a live recording.

What we’re looking for:

  • Passion for media, culture, and the arts

  • Strong writing and research skills

  • Ability to stick to a tight production schedule, work independently, and multi-task

  • Excellent people skills and a sense of humor

What you’ll do:

  • Collaborate with the production team on guest booking, content ideas, interview preparation, script writing, editing, and editorial feedback

  • Provide and incorporate meaningful feedback throughout the production process

  • Collaborate with producers and marketing team on compelling show titles, descriptions, marketing copy/assets, and other marketing campaigns

  • Analyze show performance metrics and prepare reports

  • Attend weekly remote interstitial recordings and other meetings

“As the first production fellow at Live Wire, I felt like I was constantly learning — about radio, podcasts, live shows, and the arts in general.  I learned what it was like to work with a team on a tight production schedule. I was able to contribute creatively and always felt like my ideas and opinions mattered. This fellowship program is an amazing and fun way to develop new skills and learn from some of the greats.” – Tanvi Kumar, Live Wire Production Fellow 2022 – 2023

Pay is $2000 per month for 20 hours a week for ten months.

Deadline to apply: May 31, 2023

Fellowship dates: September 5, 2023 – June 28, 2024
