WORK @ THE TEXAS NEWSROOM

NPR and its member stations have created an innovative new system of regional news hubs designed to reshape the journalism landscape — and the prototype for the nation is in Texas.

The Texas Newsroom is a collaboration between the Texas stations and NPR. The managing stations are KUT in Austin, KERA in Dallas, Houston Public Media and Texas Public Radio in San Antonio.

Texas is a great state for journalism. It is a huge, multi-culture, multi-ethnic expanse of land and people, with as many distinct identities and regions as most countries. As a border state, one of the fastest growing states in the country, and the second largest economy in the United States, what happens in Texas is often national – and sometimes international – news.

Legislative Reporting Intern, The Texas Newsroom

This internship is an opportunity to cover the 2022 Texas legislative session alongside veteran editors and reporters. The intern will learn about policymaking and craft daily stories for radio and digital audiences in Texas and, via NPR, across the country.

We are seeking a college student in the Austin area who is passionate about covering the issues that deeply affect Texans’ lives – and how lawmakers are addressing those topics. Our previous interns and fellows have reported on everything from abortion legislation to proposals to change the way Texans vote to bills filed in response to the state’s catastrophic winter storm.

The fellow will be matched with a mentor and will have the opportunity to attend workshops on topics like audio editing and political reporting.

Fellowship dates: Jan. 17 to May 31, 2023.

This position is seasonal and part-time. It is not eligible for benefits. The position is FLSA classified as non-exempt and directly reports to the Statewide Senior Editor, TTN.
