Spring Internship - Under the Radar (Education)
GBH enriches people's lives through programs and services that educate, inspire, and entertain, fostering citizenship and culture, the joy of learning, and the power of diverse perspectives.
Under the Radar with Callie Crossley is a one-hour news and public affairs program airing weekly on GBH on Sundays from 6-7pm. The program focuses primarily on local issues and stories that bubble up from hyper-local news outlets. Under the Radar also frequently expands on topical national and wider cultural conversations by drawing in perspectives from a rich landscape of alternative presses, professions and academia in Boston, culminating in a diverse mix of voices rarely heard elsewhere in public radio.
Under the Radar is seeking an intern to work alongside the Associate Producer on daily production tasks such as pitching potential segment ideas, booking guests, compiling research and pulling audio to use in show taping. While Under the Radar airs on Sunday, all show production takes place during regular work-week hours (9AM-5PM, Monday-Friday).
