About the position

NHPR’s Public Radio Fellowship with The Exchange is a ten month fellowship for those with a strong interest in politics and public policy who aspire to a career in public media. The Fellow will gain hands-on experience in radio show production working on our public affairs show, The Exchange.


The Fellow will craft digital content for the daily show and engage with our audience through social media and other programs such as Hearken to promote it and gather ideas for future programs.  The Fellow will also help choose and write newscast items from the show, working with the News department to help ensure that The Exchange is part of the daily news cycle. In addition, he or she will pitch show ideas, pre-interview guests, and write promos and script materials, including questions for the host. 


Working alongside experienced producers and journalists, the Fellow will learn about writing for radio and editing audio, and will sharpen reporting, researching, and interviewing skills. He or she will be joining NHPR during a busy election season and will have the opportunity to take part in planning and producing election events, such as candidate interviews and debates.


The fellowship is a part-time (32 hours per week), ten month position.  Fellows receive a stipend of $20,000 plus benefits, including health insurance and paid vacation and holidays.
