The culmination of four months of hard work by NPR's Spring 2011 interns debuted on Thursday with the premiere of Intern Edition — an entirely intern-led project to produce a 30-minute multimedia program, companion website and premiere event.
One facet of NPR's internship program, Intern Edition teams up interns all across the organization in this semester-long project. Each intern fills a role including hosts, reporters, photographers, editors, bloggers, communication and event planning staff, and web designers.
The stories in the Spring 2011 show follow the theme, "Not Quite There," and feature perspectives from 20-somethings around the world as they seek to pursue their goals during an uncertain time in life. Highlights of the show include:
The show and all of the stories produced by Intern Edition can be viewed on the Intern Edition Spring 2011 website.
Offered each fall, spring, and summer, the NPR internship program is designed to provide eligible students and recent graduates with an opportunity to learn about broadcasting and the supporting areas of NPR through hands-on, practical experience.
