New Hampshire Public Radio (NHPR) is seeking recent graduates who aspire to a career in public media to join our team as a fellow. The fellow will gain hands-on experience in all aspects of talk show production working on our daily public affairs program, The Exchange.
About the position
Working alongside experienced producers and journalists, the fellow will learn about writing for radio and will develop producing, research, and interviewing skills. They will learn to pitch show ideas, conduct research, pre-interview guests, edit and produce audio pieces for broadcast, screen calls, and write promos. They will contribute to the program’s digital content and help choose newscast items. The fellow will also work closely with the host and others to write scripts and help shape on-air conversations. By the end of the fellowship, they will have independently produced and directed several shows.
The fellowship is a full-time, eight month position. Fellows receive a stipend of $25,000 plus benefits, including company-paid individual health and dental insurance and paid vacation, sick time, and holidays. This position is based in Concord, New Hampshire. With beaches, lakes, cities, and mountains, New Hampshire is both a beautiful and dynamic place to live.
NHPR is committed to mentoring our fellows, including candidates from untraditional professional backgrounds, and helping them develop as journalists and leaders. Fellows will have the opportunity to attend professional training or a conference during the fellowship.
