So, you want to get into radio…but what does it take to break into the industry? If you want to learn everything about a successful morning radio show, now’s your chance! Apply for an internship with The Bert Show, where you’ll learn everything about running one of the country’s most successful Top 40 morning shows, including:
- What goes into behind-the-scenes producing and daily operations
- Reporting on celebrity and entertainment news
- Cutting audio and recording production that plays nationwide
- Crafting social media content and structuring social marketing strategies
- Researching celebrity interviews
- Board Operations
- Brainstorming and writing creative pieces for thebertshow.com
What’s it like being a Bert Show intern? Two days a week, interns sit in studio with the cast and crew during the show, which runs weekday mornings 5AM – 10AM. You’ll learn the basics of a show, including how to index the show, pull – and write – content for Kristin’s Entertainment Buzz, assist in audio production and show operations, and learn what it takes to be on-air talent.
Does my major matter? Nope! While we are generally looking for interns who want to get into radio as a career and who are majoring in communications, journalism, broadcast or marketing, it is not necessary.
Who are you looking for? We’re looking for hard-working, think-outside-the-box types who are willing to pay attention to detail (it matters). If you’re a self-starter who can troubleshoot, think on your own, and are ready to learn and chip in, we want you. And obviously, you should love radio!
Want More? If you want to dive in even deeper, once you learn the interdisciplinary “basics,” you can customize your internship and pick a concentration: producing and operations, audio production, or entertainment journalism / social media, so don’t forget to check the box for the area below that you’re most interested in!
