Summer Internship, New York Public Radio
WNYC
New York City

The NYPR Radio Archives currently maintains a collection of more than 55,000
cataloged broadcast recordings dating from June 1927 to the present. These
recordings cover the gamut of the station's activities as one of the nation's
earliest public broadcasters. They include live concerts from venues around
the metropolitan area, as well as public events and speeches covering the full
range of political, cultural, and civic activities in and around New York
City. Also included in the NYPR Archives are paper records, photographs,
correspondence, newspaper clippings, program guides, and scripts (copies and
originals) dating from 1924 to the present. The collection also features
vintage microphones and WPA commissioned artwork.

  
Since 1924, NYPR Radio has provided public radio listeners with award-winning
educational, cultural, news and public affairs programming to the greater New
York area and across the country. With more than one million weekly listeners
tuning in to NYPR, our core audience comes from all five boroughs of New York
City and beyond to at least 55 counties in three states.

  
This internship will provide an opportunity for a qualified student to work
with the Archives' staff on several ongoing digitization and access
projects. Over the course of the summer, the intern will
learn the analog-to-digital transfer process, work within the Archives' PBCore
database, and help create content for the Archives'
website.
