    WUWM 89.7 - Milwaukee's NPR, a department of UW-Milwaukee and an NPR member station, offers an exciting and creative work environment. WUWM looks for dedicated people who are ready for a challenge.


    WUWM is a growing station with an award-winning newsroom and a commitment to Public Media for All’s DEI initiatives. We have a team of about 35 with offices located on the Riverwalk in the heart of downtown Milwaukee. Our offices are an easy walk (or short drive) to Lake Michigan beaches, cultural destinations, the Milwaukee Bucks arena, and Summerfest, which bills itself as the “World’s Largest Music Festival.”


    Milwaukee is Wisconsin’s largest city, with a metro area of about 1.5 million. The region features distinct neighborhoods with their own character, an extensive county parks system, a thriving restaurant scene, dog parks, local coffee roasters, the Harley-Davidson Museum, America’s Black Holocaust Museum (reopening February 2022), an annual film festival, the Milwaukee Brewers, Potawatomi Bingo Casino and more. If you like to travel, the state has beautiful destinations with lots to see and do, including numerous state parks, Door County, Wisconsin Dells and the wooded and lake-rich region of northern Wisconsin. Chicago is about a two-hour drive away (a ride of about 90 minutes by train).

    Eric Von Broadcast Fellowship

    Journalists at WUWM identify, report, edit and produce a wide range of stories for all WUWM programs and digital platforms. The Von Fellowship is designed to give recently graduated students the opportunity to work in a professional news environment, preparing stories for broadcast and digital platforms. The Von Fellow is expected to be a self-starter who can manage their time, find news story ideas and follow through with assignments/meet deadlines. We greatly encourage members of underrepresented groups to apply.

    Specific duties include: Research, gather, write, edit and produce stories and interviews for broadcast and digital platforms. Respond to, and report on, other news stories as assigned. Participate in station activities including fund drives and community events.

    The Eric Von Broadcast Fellowship will expected to start on August 1, 2023 and will be required to work weekdays, evenings and some weekends as needed.

    Applications received after April 30, 2023 may not receive consideration.
