About Next Generation Radio
The Next Generation Radio project is a full-scale, digital-first multimedia training project with emphasis on “radio storytelling.” We are committed to the professional development of undergraduate and graduate students who are focused on journalism.
Don't Be Shy. Get In Touch.
NPR’s Next Generation Radio program is a series of week-long student training projects, designed to give students who are interested in radio and journalism the skills and opportunity to report and produce their own radio story. If you are interested in working with the program, inquire through @NextGenRadio.
Next Generation Radio is a series of one-week student radio training projects co-sponsored by NPR member stations and several journalism and media organizations.
The projects are designed to give students who are interested in radio and journalism an opportunity to report and produce their own radio and multimedia stories, and connect our fellows with public radio newsrooms all over the nation.
Teaching sessions touch on several areas: recording techniques, writing, voice and on-air presentation, social media reporting and audio production.
We’ll be in several locations throughout 2016. We’re scheduled to be in Atlanta, Ga., Reno, Nev., Austin, Texas, St. Paul, Minn. and Sacramento, Calif. Follow @nextgenradio for updates and information.
