- AL Reading Service
WBHM is a member-supported service of the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), “Your NPR news station,” and home to the Alabama Radio Reading Service, a resource for the blind and print-impaired.
Exciting times are ahead for WBHM, where our listeners encourage us to do more as we work to build a better community, inform citizens, and enrich the Magic City’s cultural life. Birmingham has a storied, complex history. Since 1976, WBHM has been integral in the city’s past, and we intend to be a vital and vibrant part of its future as we continue to make a difference in the heart of Alabama.
We currently have two openings. NPR and its member stations are creating an innovative system of regional news hubs designed to reshape the journalism landscape — and we’re building one of the first hubs in the Gulf states to be based in Birmingham, Ala., at WBHM, lead station for the collaboration between the network and the Gulf stations. The other two managing stations are WWNO in New Orleans and MPB in Jackson, Miss.
(Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, we are not currently accepting applications for internships or Alabama Reading Service volunteers.)
