Internships

Newsroom

Are you interested in a career in media, journalism, or radio?

4ZZZ radio is offering a four-month internship program for people wishing to develop their news presentation and reporting skills. During the internship, students write, produce and present hourly news bulletins for Zedlines.

The internship requires a commitment of one morning per week from 7:00am-12:30pm at the 4ZZZ station in Fortitude Valley. Interns will start their first month in Early February and finish in late May. Interns will gain experience in:

  • News writing and researching
  • Voice presentation and on-air announcing
  • Interview techniques and technologies
  • Audio recording and editing
  • Social media promotion and posting stories to the web
  • Interns at 4ZZZ join a team of nearly 200 active volunteers who assist the station in production, PR, music, promotions and online reviews.

After completing a Zedlines internship, there are opportunities to join and contribute to 4ZZZ’s news and current affairs program, Brisbane Line, or work in other areas of the station – even have your own radio show!

Applications for the February to May internship are open NOW until January 13, 2023

4ZZZ Training programs are open to everyone in the community, however popular training programs are prioritised toward 4ZZZ subscribers & volunteers.

4ZZZ runs regular in-house announcer training sessions which equip trainees with the skills to run their very own 4ZZZ program.

We also run sessions oriented to youth, First Nations and the general public at various times throughout the year.

Other training courses/sessions are held on an ad-hoc basis, focusing on various aspects of community media and helping build useful skill sets.
