Public media has a unique mission: to broadcast fair and truthful journalism, to facilitate conversations aimed at bridging political and cultural divides and to engage communities in solving local problems. Public media also provides universal access to all Americans to unique cultural content: noncommercial children’s programming, performances and documentaries about the arts, science, and history; and classical, jazz and folk music on the radio.
Public media is a national treasure, but it needs new blood, greater diversity and fresh ideas.
NPR and PBS stations are hiring! Right now, stations around the country are looking for reporters and editors, social media and digital experts, fundraisers and underwriting sales people; music hosts, videographers, engagement coordinators and event planners. Many of these stations post jobs on publicmediajobs.org, the #1 portal for careers in public media. Many of these stations are participating in Current’s October 17 Virtual Career Fair, a recruiting event that’s free and accessible to CofC students and alumni.
The Oct. 17th Virtual Career Fair is an excellent, easy way for your students and alums to job shop, make connections, learn about public media, secure follow-up interviews and get on the radar with recruiters for future openings.
