Use this application to creatively show us how you would be a contributing member of UCLA Radio. Be yourself in the application; this is the only chance we have to see who you are before we interview! Have fun with it!
Please be aware of the commitment involved with joining Radio. Interns are expected to attend mandatory classes Tuesdays 8-9pm, a one-hour radio show with a DJ mentor once a week (scheduled to your needs), weekly department meetings, biquarterly all-station meetings, and other potential events/socials. There will also be a few creative, station-related assignments. Most interns find all of these engagements fun and rewarding, but if you don’t have the time or enthusiasm, please consider applying in a future quarter. Also be aware that if you are accepted, we will ask you to attend the first intern class Tuesday, January 21 8-9pm.
You may complete two applications maximum. If you are accepted as an intern, you will not be required to stay in the department you applied for. All Radio members are encouraged to explore all departments fully, and switch or contribute to multiple if they wish. Members of any department are welcome to have a show on air.
The main role of the productions department is to maintain the audio equipment in the station and run live sound for ISPs (In Studio Performances). This mostly entails miking the band and their equipment, as well as mixing the performance and posting it on SoundCloud afterward. This department deals a lot with audio equipment and other pieces of tech, so if you like that kind of stuff this is the department for you! No experience is required but we love to see that you have and interest in this field.
NOTE: All new UCLA Radio members are considered "interns" during their first quarter, regardless of department. The designation of intern or staff on each application is arbitrary; there is no difference.
