Posted: January 10, 2013 by IUsec in Internships, Jobs

WFHB is proud to have the most-awarded radio news department in the state of Indiana – taking home 18 awards for journalism from the Society of Professional Journalists’ Best of the Best in Indiana 2011 contest. We strongly believe that we are so highly acclaimed because of our amazing volunteer news staff, whose dedication to local issues and impeccable reporting shines through on each of our 17 news and public affairs programs, all featuring original content and produced in-house at the WFHB firehouse.

While no experience is necessary to join the WFHB News Department, we do encourage you  to familiarize yourself  with our programing, and to hold yourself to the journalistic standards necessary for any credible newsroom.  We have positions available in all aspects of broadcasting, and encourage you to dapple in all roles in the news department as you start out. You may find yourself drawn to a particular position, or like many of our volunteers, enjoy wearing various hats around the firehouse.

Opportunities in the firehouse include reporting, audio production, broadcast engineering, website management and social media, writing, and administrative duties. Regular shifts are encouraged due to the already unpredictable nature of news, but there are ways to help that can accommodate any schedule.


WFHB News Department Positions

 – edit raw audio from interviews or events into packaged news features or completed public affairs programs. Producers sometimes collect the audio themselves by attending events or conducting interviews, and package can feature voice over or just be seamlessly edited together. This shifts are 11-2pm or 2-5pm and producers provide one feature per shift. This schedule is also flexible, especially if producers are motivated to go out and collect their own audio. Editing can be done away from the studio.
