For several months each summer, our intern serves as a full-time reporter/producer/host under the direct supervision of one of our two regular news staffers. The intern will learn to serve as a local host for KFSK’s Morning Edition from 5:30-8:30 a.m. Monday through Friday. That means live on-air reading of local news, weather and announcements and meeting time posts for NPR’s Morning Edition. KFSK’s intern must be willing to get up early. Aside from morning hosting, duties include researching, sourcing, writing and producing at least two to three pieces each week for local, regional and possible statewide broadcast. Our intern produces sound-rich features, complex news packages, host wraps, interview segments and simple readers. As a general assignment reporter, the intern has the opportunity to cover a variety of topics. The intern also helps keep our website updated.

Our small news staff works with a virtual newsroom that includes reporters at four other stations in the region. It’s called the CoastAlaska Radio Network. We regularly share stories and coordinate coverage of regional news. We also share with many other stations across the state as part of the Alaska Public Radio Network.

Many of our interns have won Alaska Press Club Awards for their summer work. Some have gone on to work for public radio stations in Alaska or elsewhere around the country. We hope to train our newest intern to have the same success.

KFSK is located in Petersburg, on an island in Southeast Alaska. It’s primarily a commercial fishing town and has about 3,000 residents. We are in the heart of the Tongass National Forest, one of the most beautiful places on earth. We are surrounded by mountains, glaciers, water, and wildlife. It rains a lot here, over 100 inches annually. Think Seattle, but rainier. It’s relatively isolated but has a lot of basic amenities. There are no fast-food restaurants or big-box stores.
