About

Are you a writer? Find yourself curious about journalism or just like staying caught up on the news?

KYRS is seeking self-motivated individuals to help produce a short weekly radio show covering Eastern Washington news. Of particular focus will be regional topics that are often under-reported or overlooked by network-owned stations.

Duties will include:

  • Synthesizing the week’s local news stories and summarizing developments for listeners
  • Producing original reporting
  • Conducting interviews
  • Compiling segments into shows

Experienced journalists, individuals with deep local knowledge, students and individuals wishing to pursue news reporting are highly encouraged to apply. This is an excellent opportunity to promote local civic engagement while gaining real world experience in radio journalism and receiving in-depth, hands-on training in broadcast. A high level of journalism ethics and accountability is mandatory.

This is a volunteer position requiring training, reliability, and commitment. To apply, please email a resume and cover letter to volunteercoordinator@kyrs.org. Include contact details for three academic or professional references.
