Summer Radio Intensive! Sign Up before June 27, 2008!


KBOO Community Radio is proud to announce the 2008 KBOO Youth in Broadcast Journalism Summer Intensive. We will create a half-hour news-magazine formatted radio program to air on KBOO Radio.

This Intensive will be July 7-11, 2008 at KBOO Radio, 20 SE 8th Ave. in Portland. We also hope to do some reporting from City Hall and other locations around the city of Portland.

Our Radio Program will teach youth how to create broadcast content through accessing news wire services, conducting interviews, creating commentaries, and will learn other broadcast journalism skills. Participants will be given a CD of their audio, and a CD of the show that is broadcast. The show will also be archived on KBOO’s website.

 This program is free. We ask the students have some experience in Journalism or writing, whether on the School Newspaper, through self-publishing, or somewhere in between.  We are limited in the number of applicants we can accept because this Intensive is taking place at KBOO, during regular business hours. Therefore, this Program will have a maximum of 10 members. Applications will be accepted on a first come-first served basis and the registration deadline is June 27, 2008.

 If you have any questions, please feel free to call: Erin Yanke (503) 231-8032 x221, or email
