    Hi there. What are the dates for the internship?

    • bushradio Says:

      3 months minimum.

      • Mandisa Says:


        A minimum of 3 months? So what is the maximum running time and when does the programme commence?



      • bushradio Says:

        The internship starts as soon as we find the right people – we start it off for three months to ensure that the people selected are the right ones and fit into the Bush organisation

    Pity its not part time, my daughter matriculates this year but going to study full time next year and she wants to become a radio presenter…

    • bushradio Says:

      The internship is not for anyone who wants to be a presenter, but specifically for people who have a passion for hard core news – running around, getting stories, doing follow-up etc.

      We will be posting other volunteer positions up soon, so please check back often – there may be something she is interested in.
