Up To Date interns assist with the day-to-day operations of KCUR’s award-winning daily public affairs talk show hosted by Steve Kraske. Interns pitch show and feature ideas, participate in production meetings, research show topics and guests, mix recorded promos and billboards, update the web page, gather and edit audio, conduct pre-interviews and screen phone calls during the live broadcast.

By the end of the term, interns have pitched and produced at least one show segment intended for broadcast on Up To Date. We require strong research, writing and organizational skills; we prefer candidates with basic skills in audio editing (we use Adobe Audition), social media and website content management systems.

Up to Date interns work quickly, independently and successfully under pressure and with constant deadlines.

This is a full-time, 40 hours/week internship.
