Graduates and students might be interested in this BBC scheme, but it is not clear from the writers’ guide whether you get paid.
“Series 2 of Newsjack begins broadcasting on Thursday 07th January for six weeks……Newsjack is BBC Radio 7’s topical sketch show which seeks to comically scrutinise the news, views and issues of the day. It looks to be irreverent and satirical, a kind of younger brother to the more “grown up” Radio 4 topical shows like The Now Show and The News Quiz.
It is a showcase for new comedy writing so anyone can submit material. We accept sketches and short jokes every week of the six week run. The best submissions will make it into the 28 minute show.”
