WBVM 90.5 FM Inc.

Internship and Volunteer Program

Period October 1, 2021-September 30, 2022

 

Spirit FM, a religious broadcasting institution, welcomes all college students who have a desire to learn more about radio and communications. An internship with Spirit FM can lead to success in the radio and broadcasting business in several areas.  Internships are open to students who are studying communications, marketing, radio and television, computer science, or electronic engineering.  Internships are not paid positions; however, students earn college credit for the semester/quarter. Therefore, all applicants must be enrolled in college and have an interest in radio, journalism, telecommunication, marketing, and/or liberal arts programs that apply to communication.

Internships are limited in number, so you are encouraged to apply early. Typical duration of an internship is 4 months but is flexible to meet the course requirements.  You are encouraged to discuss this opportunity with your guidance counselor, professor, or course instructor to ensure that it meets curriculum guidelines. Once accepted into the program, interns will work with Spirit FM staff and class schedules to work out a schedule that is agreeable to both parties and, at a minimum, match the college credits earned. Interns may also be subject to a mid-term evaluation.

If you are interested in becoming a Spirit FM intern, please email jmorris@spiritfm905.com.  Include your name, email address, college you attend, your major, expected graduation date, field, or department of interest (engineering, production, promotions, etc.), fall or spring semester and goals.  You should also provide a Letter of Introduction that outlines goals for the semester.  Please include a resume and a recommendation from faculty or advisor.

Due to the COVID pandemic in the early Spring of 2020 and lasting into 2022 and need for social distancing, WBVM did not host in-person internships for much of 2021-22. In the summer of 2022, WBVM, hosted one intern/volunteer:
