Weekend Broadcast Meteorology Internship with Flag Family Media

Dean Wysocki (dean.wysocki@flagfamily.com) of Flag Family Media is seeking a Weekend Broadcast Meteorology Intern for the summer and academic school year. Mr. Wysocki was formerly a Meteorologist at Channel 8 in Lincoln, and he may only be seeking an intern from interested students at UNL.

Flag Family Media is offering a summer and academic school year internship for students pursuing a major or minor in Atmospheric Sciences. We are looking for a senior level student but will also consider a junior to join the SkyWatch Weather Center with Flag Family Media for operational and real world experience in forecasting and forecast delivery. This position would likely start at the end of April to early May. Applicants would be expected to create an accurate 7-day forecast for Fargo and Tioga ND, and update/manage an online 7-Day forecast. Additionally, creating and loading multiple 30 second recorded forecast for Fargo, ND to a radio rotator to air on two radio stations throughout the weekend. Recordings will focus on the day at hand, tonight, and tomorrow plus the following day if time permitted. On average these duties should only consume 1-2 hours a day and can be performed remotely from home.

This internship opportunity will be non-paid, for school credit towards your major. Two credits (of METR 495) for the summer/fall semester, and one credit (of METR 495) for the spring semester totaling three credits for the full internship. This internship can be completed entirely remotely, and we will provide the intern with a laptop.

We will provide training and guidance in forecasting and radio forecast delivery to improve your skills as an operational forecaster with real world experience. Additional opportunities for job shadowing will be provided for forecast delivery and severe weather coverage.

Weekly meetups (virtual) will be conducted to see how your skills are improving, critiques, weather discussions (the forecast at hand), and Q/A.
