Next Generation Radio is a one-week, college student-focused, multimedia training project co-sponsored by NPR, NPR member stations, colleges and universities around the US.

This “bootcamp” is designed to give aspiring journalists an opportunity to work one-on-one with a professional mentor. Each team conceives, reports, edits and produces a character-driven multimedia story. Trainers present sessions in story pitching, audio field recording, photography and videography, script writing and editing, multi-track mixing, voicing and on-air presentation.

The overarching goal is to find and train the next generation of journalists for careers in public media.
