KRTS Marfa Public Radio, 93.5 FM, is pleased to welcome two Fall interns to the station.
David Wieland and Alice Quinlan will spend the next few months assisting with station activities, producing radio programming, and learning first-hand how a community supported, non-commercial radio station operates.
Wieland, a native of Houston, graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in December, 2010 with a degree in Radio-Television-Film. He’s previously interned at ABC radio in Australia and the Austin Film Festival.
Wieland says he’s looking forward to getting to know the community and gaining more radio skills.
Quinlan graduated in May from Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville, New York, where she studied philosophy and writing. She became interested in radio while taking a radio writing class in college. At Sarah Lawrence, Quinlan started “The Speakeasy Story Project,” a story-telling series. She grew up in Chicago, which “is known as a radio town,” she said.
KRTS offers internships to college students and recent graduates on a quarterly basis. Sul Ross State University students are especially encouraged to apply. The application deadline for January 2012 internships is November 1.
