Do you love to write and shoot sport? Want to just give it a try?

Then you’re welcome to come and join us as a RED SPORTS intern.

You will learn to write a sports story, figure out how to photograph sports, build courage to interview complete strangers and make new friends in the sports industry.

One of our ex-interns, Noor Farhan, joined News Radio 938LIVE in 2011.

Some of our interns enjoyed the programme so much, they stayed on as volunteer Red Crew in subsequent years. Over time, we’ve built up good memories together as a crew.

One of our past graduates, Ryan Lim, had this to say about his experience.

“The couple of months as a part of the Red Crew exposed me to more than I initially expected. I went from interviewing budding school-athletes to chatting with Olympian Quah Zheng Wen because I got the chance to cover the Singapore National Age Group (SNAG) Swimming Championships and the Singapore Youth Olympic Festival. And if that’s not enough, I even managed to pick up photography while I was at it!”

Program Prerequisites

• Minimum age of 18 years old
• Currently enrolled in a Singapore school/institution (JC/poly/university/ITE). If you’re waiting to start National Service or the start of your new academic year, you are also welcome to apply
• Be able and willing to commit at least twice a week for 6 months (approx 6 hours a week)
• Familiar with and love school sports
• Computer literacy is a must!
• For writers only: Minimum B in English Language

What to Expect
1. We will call you for an interview and you will sit for a written test. This will also apply for photographers.
2. If you pass the written test, we will welcome you into our internship programme.
3. Interns are expected to produce 20 stories over the course of six months. You can finish at a faster rate if you wish.

7. Some students have also used this programme to gain Community Involvement Programme (CIP) points. This depends on your school and so please speak to your teacher.

  3. Hi, perhaps it would be better to upload a MS Word document instead? Since we have to email it back, and well.. You can’t type in a PDF file 🙂
