WUOT’s Next Wave Radio Project gives the brightest and most ambitious college students an opportunity to experience public radio journalism from the inside. Most Next Wave students at WUOT serve the station as staff reporters, covering events, researching stories, recording and editing interviews and writing news copy for air. At the same time, we’re able to introduce another generation to the passion that drives public radio.
Below, you'll find radio stories produced by some of our distinguished Next Wave alumni. Who knows? Maybe one of them will be the next Audie Cornish or Steve Inskeep.
(If you're interested in learning more about this challenging, rewarding and fun opportunity, contact Matt Shafer Powell at firstname.lastname@example.org)
Here are some of the interviews and feature stories you've heard recently on WUOT
