The Faces of 90.5 WESA
Fellowships and Internships
90.5 WESA recognizes the need to continually expand our talent to meet the demand for quality news programming. That is why 90.5 WESA nurtures a comprehensive broadcast journalism and media management fellowship/internship program with colleges and universities. To date, the program has helped to develop the skills of many up-and-coming journalists, reporters, managers and media managers who are now working around the country.
Individuals with a strong interest in public media and a desire to help meet the information needs of our community are invited to apply for a fellowship/internship with 90.5 WESA. Opportunities are available in our award-winning news department; with the daily news magazine/talk show Essential Pittsburgh; in operations and production; in marketing; in developing web content; working closely with the Director of Content and Programming as a producer and, in fundraising and communications.
