- The Houston Matters internship is designed for college students or adults out of school who have some rudimentary experience in broadcast journalism — a previous internship, part-time job, or related coursework. The applicant should already know the basics of interviewing.

Interns also learn how to use those interviews to produce “sonic IDs” and other short-form segments used within the program. Interns will also be introduced to various aspects of the program, including: brainstorming topics and guests, pre-interviewing, scheduling, and greeting guests, and development of production elements for use on air and online. Candidates should have strong writing and interviewing skills, comfort with digital recording and editing technology, and should be able to work independently. The schedule can be adaptable to interns’ needs, but meeting hard deadlines is absolutely essential. The position is unpaid.
