2016 Interns

Conor McCracken-Flesher Summer 2016 Internship

Working at Wyoming Public Media was a blast. I learned a lot—not just about producing, editing, and scripting audio content, but about Wyoming as well. Despite having lived in Wyoming my whole life, I never understood it better than during my time at WPM. Micah Schweizer was a fantastic mentor. He was never overbearing, but he was always ready to lend a hand and give tips. He helped develop my skills and understanding of radio, and made my time at WPM the highlight of my summer.

Liam Niemeyer’s Summer 2016 Internship

Wyoming Public Radio provided me the opportunity to be surrounded by radio storytelling and journalism experts, and that experience was invaluable. The journalists at WPR are dedicated to informing the public, while also making room to show other people like myself how they do it each day.

Maggie Mullen's Spring 2016 Internship 

My time as an intern at Wyoming Public Radio has been one of the most valuable learning experiences of my life. The newsroom has taught me everything I know about radio news production with great patience and a remarkable depth of knowledge. It has been a privilege to learn from some of the very best reporters and I am thrilled to continue to learn and work in the WPR newsroom.

Raena Bush's Fall 2015 & Spring 2016 Internships

Being able to intern here at WPR has been invaluable. I've always been interested in the radio industry and being a part of this station only made me want to work in this business more. With the experience and skills I've gained these last two semesters, I've got a real foot in the door. The chance to produce real content and explore has been phenomenal!
