Apply Now

The Redeemer Radio 95.7 FM Sports Internship is a hands-on program for students at St. Joseph and Marian high schools. For the first time, enrolled students will receive class credit. Students will work with Redeemer Radio Sports Director Angelo Di Carlo and coach Bob Berger and to develop skills that apply to radio, television & social media by learning how to put a professional sports broadcast on the air and the promotion behind it.

Entering its third year, the internship program will now become a one credit class in each semester at both high schools. Redeemer Radio broadcasts St. Joseph and Marian football and basketball games. The program will center around coverage of these broadcasts and will be broken up into two different classes—one during football season and one during basketball season. Students are welcome to sign up for one semester of class or for both semesters. We are also hoping to add a live video stream of our broadcasts that will give interns added opportunities on the video side of production.

John Brach (right) will be entering his sophomore year at Notre Dame and is a game analyst for Redeemer Radio’s football broadcasts. John was a star on the Marian football team & took part in the Redeemer Radio internship program during the basketball season of his senior year in 2018-2019. John did so well he was offered an on-air position on the broadcast team starting last season.

Students will develop various media skills by rotating through different hands-on roles:

  • Run Redeemer Radio social media accounts during games, developing promotion strategies
  • Provide in-game statistics in broadcast booth that will be used live on the air
  • Opportunities to be an on-air reporter during weekly game preview interviews and a sideline reporter during games, developing performance & oral communication skills
  • Interns will learn production techniques on video, editing & posting to social media
  • Additional production opportunities include running the station audio board during broadcasts
  • Understanding of what it takes to work as a team to put together a professional broadcast
  • Studying of the history & ethics of radio and television

Semesters:

  • Semester 1: August 1 – November 15
  • Semester 2: November 16 – March 22

***Final dates subject to change

Schedule for Internship & Radio & Television I course:

The program will take place multiple times a week after school, totally roughly 5-10 hours per week.

  • Mondays: After school classroom setting from 4-6pm at Redeemer Radio
  • Fulfill weekly assignments during the week
  • Fridays 6-10pm: Work football games for their school that are broadcast on 95.7FM.

**Students will not work the internship every Friday, depending on weekly assignments.

Kashlin Biffle (right) was a Redeemer Radio intern during both the football and basketball seasons in 2019-2020. Because she was a member of the girls basketball team, she was not able to work on the internship as much during hoops season. One night, however, Kash was named the Redeemer Radio Player of the Game during St. Joe’s girls basketball victory and then was the courtside reporter for the boys game that immediately followed! Pretty cool.

Requirements:

  • Student must be able to provide their own transportation and/or ride as this internship will be conducted after school hours at various locations throughout the area
  • A smartphone is highly encouraged (Please ask for more info if you do not have one)
