"I got to witness the powerful impact of local journalism and how hungry listeners are for more in-depth reporting and analysis about their communities. I’m now more passionate than ever to bring underrepresented voices to light and provide a platform for listeners to directly connect with their local elected officials." – Ciku Theuri, 2016 Roger Sarow Fellow
WFAE’s mission is to create journalism that informs, enriches, and inspires. To help deliver that kind of journalism we believe public media newsrooms must do their best to reflect the diverse communities they serve. WFAE seeks a college student or recent college graduate of diverse ethnicity who wants to explore a career in public media journalism. This is a producer fellowship with our local talk show Charlotte Talks. Charlotte Talks is a live show that provides a forum for the discussion of a wide range of issues including politics, the environment, and other newsworthy topics. Fellows work with other producers to conceptualize, prepare for, book, and execute programs. This is a 10-week, full-time fellowship during the summer of 2018 that pays $4,000. We are seeking applicants who have developed a journalism foundation at the college level.
Send cover letter, resume, and examples of your work to email@example.com, and use "Roger Sarow Minority Fellowship" in the subject line. The deadline is April 2.
