NPR Next Generation Radio Nevada Boot Camp

Next Generation Radio Nevada is a one-week, student multimedia training project co-sponsored by NPR, NPR member stations and the Reynolds School of Journalism.

This “boot camp” is designed to give aspiring journalists an opportunity to work one-on-one with a professional mentor. Each team conceives, reports, edits and produces a character-driven multimedia story. Trainers present sessions in story pitching, audio field recording, photography and videography, script writing and editing, multi-track mixing, voicing and on-air presentation. The overarching goal is to find and train the next generation of journalists for careers in public media.

The boot camp is open to undergraduate and graduate students, including graduating seniors. Participants will earn a $500 stipend.

The 2019 boot camp was held May 19-24, 2019. The 2020 boot camp application will open in early 2020.
