Students @ WAER


Welcome to WAER, where Syracuse University students work as multimedia professionals.

Syracuse's NPR station is staffed by full-time experienced reporters, producers and on-air hosts. We are committed to working with aspiring content creators to give them the real-world opportunities they're being trained for in the classroom.

Students may choose to join our award-winning station in several areas including sports reporting, hosting, play-by-play coverage, news reporting and web editing, on-air hosting, production and digital content development. 

Working at WAER offers you a unique opportunity to learn about the public media world in addition to the education around commercial news that you receive at Newhouse. 

Interested undergraduate and graduate students are asked to apply and then complete an assessment to find a role that best matches their skills and interests. We ask you to be available at least one day a week for a four-hour period but are willing to work with your very busy schedules, including opportunities over the weekend. 

Students pursuing a degree at SU that requires an internship may complete it at WAER but must meet certain criteria throughout the semester and ultimately receive approval from their adviser at the Newhouse School.

Complete this form to apply with WAER.
