Redeemer Radio Sports Internship

Radio and Television I Course

Apply Now to the Redeemer Radio Sports Internship Program

The Redeemer Radio 95.7 FM Sports Internship is a hands-on program for students at St. Joseph and Marian high schools. The program has grown tremendously in its first three years, including being offered for class credit for the first time during the 2020-2021 school year. Students will work with Redeemer Radio Sports Director and internship coordinator Angelo Di Carlo 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 4th year, the internship program is 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. The 2021-2022 school year will also mark the 2nd year we will video stream the game broadcasts, giving students additional opportunities to learn the video side of production.

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 in 2019. This is a photo from that season as John broadcasted his first game alongside Bob Berger (left) and Redeemer Radio 95.7FM Sports Director Angelo Di Carlo (center).

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

  • Opportunities to be an on-air reporter during weekly game preview interviews and a sideline reporter during games, developing performance & oral communication skills
  • Run Redeemer Radio social media accounts during games, developing promotion strategies
  • Interns will develop production techniques on video, editing & posting to social media
  • Running camera for the video stream of broadcasts and potentially learning to produce the video broadcast
  • Students will learn how to write, voice & edit radio commercials
  • Provide in-game stats that will be used live on the air
  • Other potential areas that students may gain experience in: sales, marketing and fundraising
  • 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
