Alabama Public Radio welcomes interns to the newsroom on a continuing basis, including fall and spring terms. Internship application deadlines are: August 1 (for fall), December 1 (for spring), and April 15 (for summer). Applications are available at the apr.org website.

Each intern is trained by the director to write his or her own story every day. Students research the story, track down interview subjects, do the interview, and write copy to be edited (all under supervision of the professional staff.)

Student writers’ material is used on APR newscasts, and interns often get to do spots for air. All from this work is done in the Digital Media Center inside Bryant-Denny Stadium. Director Pat Duggins turns students into crackerjack writers, which means jobs.

Assistant News Director Stan Ingold (singold@apr.org) is the point of contact for student interns at APR.
