WQXR Internship, Spring 2021 (Remote)

Internships New York City, New York


WQXR is looking for a self-starting intern to join our team while we continue to work remotely during the spring session.

As New York’s only classical music station, WQXR is an important fixture of the city’s cultural landscape. The station broadcasts classical music over the air and online to more than one million listeners each month, offering additional streams for contemporary classical, opera and American standards. We also produce podcasts, including Aria Code, and offer live broadcasts from Carnegie Hall, the Metropolitan Opera and more.

Interns at WQXR enjoy a robust, hands-on program that provides meaningful work experience. They will rotate through all WQXR departments including on-air programming and digital and on-demand content. Some of the skills they will acquire include writing and editorial experience, CMS and web content publishing, social media coordination, music programming in supporting our team with track selection and database management, and the potential for assisting with basic audio and video editing.

Send us a resume and cover letter.
