NPR’s Next Gen Radio projects are hybrid (remote and in-person). Our selected cohort will report from where they are. Staffing varies with each project, but mentors fit into these general categories.
This Next Gen behind-the-scenes explainer video uses as a backdrop, our March 2023 project at the Wallis Annenberg School of Communications and Journalism at the University of Southern California.

IMPORTANT: You must live within the sponsors’ city/state/region and be there the week of the program. Our IJA projects are the lone exception.
Here is our tentative schedule for 2023:
PROGRAMMING NOTE: In 2023, Next Generation Radio is considering the meaning of home. We are looking beyond the physical space and more at the feeling of home that changes as we move, work from home and make other significant life changes. What is home to you?
“Como una estudiante, NextGenRadio fue mi primera mirada al mundo del periodismo multimedia. Me dio las herramientas necesarias para mejor contar nuestras historias y me ayudó cultivar conexiones que estoy agradecía de tener.”
