Job Description
News Intern (Spring 2024)

The News Intern will work with editors, reporters and other newsroom employees and receive feedback on their efforts.
Our News Internship is for qualified students studying Broadcast Journalism, Video Production, and other Communication degrees. Internships can be for reporter, photographer, editor, newscast producer, and assignment editor. Duties may include writing stories, rewrite wire copy, editing, and researching stories.

As part of the internship, the student will have an opportunity to learn about all departments at the station. This is an UN-PAID, SUPERVISED INTERNSHIP. The student is responsible for their own transportation.

Station department heads will oversee the internship to evaluate, monitor, and assess the intern's progress and ensure they are receiving the proper education/training.
