KCAW Summer News Intern
The KCAW Summer News Intern works alongside two full-time reporters researching, writing, and producing content for our three daily newscasts, website, and social media. Sitka is located about 2 hours north of Seattle (by air) on Baranof Island, in the heart of the Tongass National Forest. Primarily a fishing port, Sitka has 8,800 year-round residents, a large and engaged indigenous community, a thriving summertime arts & cultural life, a Coast Guard Air Station, and a National Park. It is a fertile news environment, and KCAW plays a major role in the dissemination of local, state, national, and international reporting. The KCAW Summer News intern works 10 weeks (typically the end of May until the beginning of August) in our newsroom, initially as a trainee learning our methods (equipment, production, website, etc.), but concluding as our colleague — reporting, hosting, and posting content on a daily basis. We offer a $1,000 stipend, plus round-trip airfare from the Bay Area, and a free studio apartment near downtown.
