2018 Interns

Micah Schweizer is an amazing, patient, generous teacher. Working on the "Spoken Words" podcast gave me a whole new skill set and a portfolio of work that I hope will give me new opportunities down the road. My role as "producer" opened doors with authors, creating professional networking opportunities--valuable for an introvert like me. From beginning to end, a fantastic opportunity--I'm very grateful to WPM!

Klara Casillo's Summer 2018 Internship    

I had such a positive experience this summer working for Wyoming Public Radio. I was able to take the skills I gained from my professional writing classes to write a variety of stories for the station. My favorite project was the Migrant Education Program piece where I was able to write on a subject I feel very strongly about and am highly interested in.

I loved my internship at Wyoming Public Radio. Working for HumaNature was an incredible opportunity to learn both the technical and creative skills that go into making a podcast. Everyone I worked with was friendly and encouraging and made me feel at home here.

August was the lead producer for HumaNature Episode 39: Junk.

Interning at Wyoming Public Media allowed me to dive into the hustle-and-bustle that goes on at a public radio station. It was a joy to help produce HumaNature, a news feature, and feel supported in my learning process.

Working at WPR this semester has been an amazing opportunity. Working with the digital team was both busy and exciting, and provided experience with outreach to the entire state and beyond. I have greatly enjoyed my time at WPR and recommend an internship there highly.

Working as a media intern for Wyoming Public Radio this semester allowed me to have a more “hands on” approach to what I have learned so far in most of my communication classes.  Interning with Wyoming Public Radio allows for interns to earn experience in a little bit of everything: social media posting, photography as well as media graphics if needed.

Working at WPM for the summer was an awesome experience that helped me to develop skills that I can use in the future as a journalist. Everybody in the office was incredibly friendly and beyond helpful to me. I had never really worked in any journalism-related field before but this internship gave me an awesome crash course. I had a lot of fun and would love to come back in another semester.

My internship with Wyoming Public Media acquainted me with a relationship to radio that I never would have thought I could enjoy before that fateful summer. My supervisors cared about my progress and helped me develop skills that I can take on into the future with confidence. I am nothing but grateful for the opportunities Wyoming Public Media gave me.
