Nine Radio is launching the second round of its internship program following the highly successful introduction of its radio internship program in January.
The internship program is designed to discover the next generation of radio professionals who will be afforded the opportunity to shape the future of Nine’s market-leading radio stations across Australia.
Successful candidates will have the chance to gain invaluable experience while learning from the best talent in the industry.
Importantly, the six-week internships are paid, and will be offered at each Nine Radio station: Sydney’s 2GB, Melbourne’s 3AW, Brisbane’s 4BC and 6PR in Perth.
During the program, interns are provided with hands-on training in radio producing, broadcasting, journalism and social media.
Successful applicants will spend time with producers and on-air talent, and in Nine’s radio newsrooms, to learn how to produce engaging and entertaining programs, and fast and accurate news bulletins.
Tom Malone, managing director of Nine Radio, said: “We were blown away by the response to the launch of our internship program and the quality of talent we were able to unearth.
“Two of our interns have already been offered full-time work, while a further six applicants have been given casual employment. I’d encourage anyone with a passion for radio to apply for these positions,” he added.

The launch of the radio internship program earlier this year aims to provide candidates with the chance to gain invaluable experience while learning from the best talent in the industry.
At the launch of the program in January, Malone said: “Radio is a small industry and has often recruited through connections, friends and family.
“These new internships will open doors for people with no links to media and importantly they are paid positions, so candidates don’t have to give up other part time or casual work to get their chance in radio.
“Radio broadcasters are the original social influencers – shaping debate on political and social issues and responding to listeners through the talkback line, email and text message.
“Radio is the most immediate and intimate medium, and a great place for people to learn more about media.”
Malone added: “The Radio Internship Program is a very important part of our strategy to draw from the widest possible range of candidates so that we are proactively being inclusive and diverse in our recruitment, and best representing the communities in which we broadcast.”
