Next Generation Radio is a one-week, student multimedia training project co-sponsored by NPR, NPR member stations and the Reynolds School of Journalism.


The guide for the week, which doubles as a competitive motivator.


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.

Next Generation Radio — Nevada was co-sponsored and hosted by The Reynolds School of Journalism at the University of Nevada, Reno. The workshop was held May 18-22, 2015.

Special thanks to our funders The Reverend Jackie Leonard and the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation.
