In the past, WDFH-FM 90.3 Westchester Public Radio has offered extensive internships to college students.
We are currently in a transitionary period and we are not able to offer internships at this time.
The following information is provided for background use only. We will update this page when we are again accepting applications for internships.
WDFH offers internship opportunities to students who are eligible to receive college credit for internships. You are encouraged to apply whatever your major. Previous experience is always a plus but is not required.
A WDFH internship can help you develop serious, substantive experience as you build your resume.
Internships can be fun and rewarding. You’ll be working in WDFH's professional studio facilities with creative people who have a deep interest in WDFH and its service to the public. Depending on your abilities and interests, you can get experience in:
An internship will enable you to work at a legitimate FM radio station alongside our community volunteers, who have very diverse types of experience both in and outside of broadcasting.
Note: If you are interested in on-air music (DJ) work, there are two additional requirements:
There are two reasons for this extended commitment for DJs: first, it takes a lot of time and effort to get someone ready to go on the air, and because we don't have endless training resources, we must choose to train people who are willing to stick around for a while and help us run the station. Second, it makes the station sound disorganized on the air if people start a shift and then disappear after just a couple of months.
An internship is rewarding but it's also a serious commitment. You’ll receive three credits for it, and the amount of work is probably about what you’d expect in a three credit course. Specifically, the requirement is a total of 150 hours, or an average of 10 hours per week for a full semester. Some evening work will normally be required. And as we said, if you are interested in an airshift, the time commitment extends for a full year.
WDFH offers a unique chance for you to get substantive experience in radio broadcasting. Take advantage of the opportunity and apply today!
The Application Process
Space is limited and interns are chosen on a selective basis. Students in all majors are invited to apply, regardless of your experience.
