What is Intern Edition?

Intern Edition is a unique radio program managed, produced, and promoted entirely by NPR interns with guidance and assistance from NPR staff members. Working in teams, NPR interns select, research, report, and edit stories; execute legal correspondence; publicize the show; and design the Intern Edition Web site. Created and presented by NPR's interns, the program presents a fresh and compelling mix of news, features, and commentaries about subjects interns find important. A rare learning experience in how to put together a newsmagazine, Intern Edition is streamed on NPR's Web site.
