88Nine Internships: Programming

Radio Milwaukee programming internships

Radio Milwaukee 88.9; Milwaukee, WI; HGA Architects and Engineers; Darris Lee Harris Job#1166

Here's your chance to experience all of what makes a non-commercial radio station run.

While you'll be assigned to the Programming department, you'll see Programming doesn't exist in a vacuum. So, you'll perform tasks for programming, promotions, production, engineering, traffic, operations and underwriting -- and see how they all work together.

Unlike some at some other internships, your assignments won't be "make work" -- just to keep you busy. Your assignments are considered necessary to the function and success of Radio Milwaukee. Therefore, no assignment is optional and each must be completed in a thorough and timely manner.

Some examples of assignments:

  • Studio Milwaukee Session pre- and post- production (these are live performances in our studio)
  • General production duties pertaining to weekly specialty shows and features
  • Website contributions and maintenance
  • Data entry of contest information from concert and other promotions
  • Assistance with outside promotions at events
  • Assistance with development department mailings and fulfillment
  • Assistance and participation in fund drives
  • Practice and training for overnight on-air voice-tracked shifts
  • Shadowing of self-selected  staff members in areas of interest.
