Our interns work closely with producers, reporters, engineers, and digital team members to put together all aspects of our coverage. Interns write for the radio and online, research and schedule interviews, and use professional equipment to take photos or record and edit audio or video.

We also offer workshops throughout the internship on career-building skills.

Internships are open to current college students, recent college graduates, and those in the early stages of their journalism careers. If you're not sure if you're eligible, go ahead and apply.

Interns are paid $15 per hour. Fall and spring internships are 15 hours per week while summer internships are 30 hours per week. Internships last 10 weeks in the summer and 12 weeks in the spring and fall.

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.


Texas Capitol Reporter, The Texas Newsroom:  The Texas Newsroom is seeking a senior reporter to cover the state Capitol for audio and digital audiences across Texas and throughout the country. This reporter will cover statewide races and legislative sessions. They’ll dive into big policy debates on issues ranging from education and health care to guns and taxes. They’ll venture away from the statehouse to explore what policies mean for Texans of color, children, rural Texans and other groups. They’ll file spot news stories and audio features, and they’ll write digital stories – all for Texas stations and NPR.
