Job Description
WFFF in Burlington, Vermont has a paid internship opportunity through the NY Association of Broadcasters. Students will have an opportunity to gain a wide range of hands-on experience while interning in the news department. Interns work closely with producers, anchors and reporters both in-house and out in the field. At the station, interns could help research and write stories. If needed, they will also contact sources for additional information.

In the field, interns will learn how the camera equipment works, what camera shots matter and how reporters gather new information to differentiate live shots. Interns may function as field producers in the sense of coordinating interviews and attending press conferences. Other opportunities exist for those who are interested in learning more about directing and producing. Interns can shadow the producers in the control room and eventually try to produce a portion of the show themselves. For those interested in on-air opportunities, anchors and reporters will help students craft a reel.

The Internship is related to an educational purpose and there is no guarantee or expectation that the activity will result in employment with the Company. The education received by the Intern from the internship is for express benefit of the Intern. The Intern does not replace or displace any employee of the Company. The Intern will receive direct and close supervision by an appropriate supervisor. Company is not liable for injury sustained or health conditions that may arise for the paid intern during the internship.

The Student shall:
• abide by all safety rules and procedures of Company.
• exert best efforts in receiving training and cooperate with and follow the instructions of employees of Company
• maintain strictly the confidences of Company, the customers of Company, all information or data received regarding Company and any of its trade secrets or any other confidential business information received by the Student
