New York Public Radio is the owner of a number of US-based radio stations. Interns will work within the framework of the Brian Lehrer Show is WNYC’s Peabody Award-winning talk program. The show serves as a town square for New York and beyond, with newsmakers and agenda-setters, journalists and listeners conversing at length on the local, national and international news and cultural and social trends of the day.
