Find the shows and/or reporters whose work you love and listen closely. Become familiar with what we do and think deeply about ways to make it even better! And consider volunteering and/or freelancing for your local public radio station first. Build your contacts there and soon enough, you will be able to make contacts at NPR.

Go and tell me the stories behind everything that happened in the world today. Explain why it happened, and how it affects our lives. Do it every day. Tell me what’s important, and don’t waste my time with stupid stuff.
- Neal Conan, signing off on NPR’s Talk of the Nation after more than 11 years at the helm of the program and after more than 35 years with NPR News.
