UCLA Radio is looking for Spring 2024 Interns!

Use this application to creatively show us how you would be an active member of UCLA Radio. Be yourself, and have fun with it! The goal of this application is to get a sense of who you are and how you could uniquely and originally contribute to the station. We are looking for interns with enthusiasm and new ideas for improving how we use our platform!

Please be aware of the commitment involved with joining Radio. For Spring Quarter 2024, interns will be expected to attend mandatory intern meetings on Mondays at 7-8 pm, attend regular department meetings and UCLA Student Media workshops, all-station meetings, and other potential events/socials. There will also be regular creative, station-related tasks and projects. Most interns find all of these engagements fun and rewarding, but if you don’t have the time, please consider applying in a future quarter! If you are accepted, we will expect that you attend the first intern class on Monday, April 15th from 7-8 pm, and a Mandatory ASUCLA Student Media training on Sunday, April 21st, from 10AM-4PM.

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 after intern quarter. 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.

ON-AIR CONTENT (Programming) The programming department is the team behind all of UCLA Radio’s on-air content. With us, you’ll have the opportunity to help develop new content and strategy, curate our on-air presence, and assist DJs with (mostly) creative and (some) technical innovation.

This department is a critical part of radio’s internal structure, and is a great place to gain experience in a media environment. We encourage members to pursue projects that relate to their own interests using radio resources, but some projects you could contribute to include:

  • Uploading content into our music and show database
  • Creating and reviewing quarterly show applications
  • Forming partnerships with external clubs and organizations who are interested in hosting a show on our stream
  • Listening and reviewing shows for Show of the Week and Show of the Quarter; coordinating with the marketing team for Social coverage.
  • Opportunities to learn audio broadcasting and recording techniques
  • Assist music librarians in the cataloging, rehabilitation, and creative direction of UCLA Radio's music library and non-live broadcast content

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.
