Finding, coaching and training public media's next generation.
Next Gen Radio is a 5-day, audio-focused, digital journalism project. Our hybrid (some people in-person, some not) program is designed to give competitively selected participants the opportunity to learn how to report and produce a non-narrated audio piece and a companion multimedia story. Those chosen for the program are paired with a professional journalist, who serves as their mentor for the week, and the chosen participant is paid a stipend for their work.
Registration has been disabled.
“NextGen gave me the confidence I needed as an early radio reporter to trust myself to good work. It was affirming to spend a week with others who share a love and vision for public media, and I’m grateful to have those connections today.”
