Work is assigned on a weekly basis with at least one long-term project to be completed during the internship. Basically, a student will get out of this internship what they put into it.

Interns hit the ground running at KCBX, helping to develop story ideas on day one. Their focus is on our news goals, which include longer-form stories that address issues facing the Central Coast, beyond the day-of news.

Finally, interns get a rare opportunity to have their work heard by a large listening audience. By the end of their term, interns have a body of work to add to their professional portfolio. Because KCBX is a nonprofit that runs with a large volunteer staff—and because the quarter system doesn’t give enough time to fulfill our teaching goals—we ask that interns stick with KCBX for an additional pre-defined term. This gives them an opportunity to create higher-quality material, while adding to their contribution to the station.
