Radio Journalism Internships in Argentina with Projects Abroad
Interns participating on a Journalism project in Argentina work at a community radio station. The radio station covers a range of topics for their programs, including local and national news, business, debates, music, lifestyle, fashion, and more. You can become involved in a variety of different areas depending on your interests, such as conducting interviews and attending events.
Working alongside small teams of local journalists, you will be given a range of responsibilities. This could be anything from researching stories and interviewing people to editing or commenting on air. You can also learn about and get involved in various aspects of producing a radio show.
My journalistic skills were put to the test and advanced as I conducted research for our radio show, interviewed teachers at the local primary school about the newly introduced Law of Education and broadcast a music profile for an up and coming rap artist. Read more...
The radio station is geared towards tourists and the local community. Broadcasts are in Spanish so this project is a great opportunity to improve your Spanish skills. Interns will be introduced to the heritage of the region by covering local stories of interest.
During your internship in Argentina, you will receive guidance from your supervisor at the placement. Our staff at the Projects Abroad office, located in Cordoba, will also be available to offer additional support, should you need it.
This is a fantastic opportunity to get involved with all aspects of developing a radio station, while experiencing life in this stunning and traditional Argentinean setting.
