Podcasting fellowship - Honolulu Civil Beat

Honolulu Civil Beat is looking for an ambitious early-career audio reporter for a yearlong fellowship in its nascent podcasting division.

Civil Beat is a nonprofit news site in Honolulu. Our primary podcast is Offshore, a serialized investigative podcast that tackles some of the most socially relevant issues in America today.

Season one, “A Killing in Waikiki,” examined issues of race relations and federal power in Hawaii through the lens of two killings, 80 years apart. Season two, “The Sacred Mountain” focused on a clash of science and culture atop Hawaii’s tallest mountain, and looked at indigenous protest movements in other parts of the U.S.

We’re looking for a recent college graduate or early-career journalist with basic audio editing skills, excellent reporting and writing chops, and a genuine interest in longform audio storytelling.

The audio fellow can expect to do a mix of work at Civil Beat over the course of the year, from assisting with research and logging tape to reporting and writing longform audio stories under the guidance of senior staff.

The fellowship is a full time paid position based in Honolulu. We are not able to offer housing or relocation assistance at this time.


Our ideal candidate will have at least two prior internships or six months of professional reporting experience under their belt. Experience with Pro Tools is preferred. Previous knowledge of Hawaii is a plus.

How To Apply:

If you’re interested, please drop a resume, clips and cover-email by Aug. 4 to Jessica Terrell at jterrell@civilbeat.org.
