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, October 15 8-9pm and an all-station meeting Wednesday, October 16 6-8pm.
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 Programming Department is the heartbeat of UCLA Radio, providing creative support and organizational structure for our diverse roster of shows. Every quarter, the Programming Department reviews and provides constructional feedback on DJs show ideas, and then creates the show schedule. As a member of the Programming Department, you’ll be responsible for listening to shows throughout the quarter to help bring insight about our on-air content through your own unique perspective, essentially taking on the role of a producer for the programs that interest you. You can also help create content for our Programming Instagram (@uclaradioprog), and work on the development of UCLA Radio’s iTunes podcasts. Through the Programming Department, you’ll be able to work on both creative and practical skills, and will have the opportunity to connect with the wide range of ideas and individuals that make up our beautiful station.
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.
