Internship Program

LEAP Digital Media Internship

Thanks to generous support from the Susanne Marcus Collins Foundation, LGBT Center and Ali Forney Center, we’ve launched a Digital Media Internship Program for LGBT youth! Our studio is training the next generation of creators in the broadcast media industry. Some skills we teach include:

  • Editing

  • Soundboard operations

  • Call screening

  • Social media

  • Audio software programs, and

  • Live show production.

Internship Details

Our program has two phases: Basic and Advanced. Each one is 120 hours, spaced out over the course of 6-7 weeks.

At the end of the Basic phase, the intern is evaluated before moving on to the Advanced phase. This stage of the internship offers a more generous stipend and allows the intern to build on the skills acquired in Phase 1.

Our Internship Program is managed by Katie Castellano, a 10-year veteran of the radio industry. Her distinguished broadcast career began with a radio internship as well. Over the years, she has mentored and supervised dozens of interns, several of whom have gone on to careers in broadcast and digital media.
