Prospective Intern:

The deadline to apply for the fall internship period has passed.  Those selected to participate in the program will be notified before the close of business Wednesday, August 6th. 

NOTE: I will accept applications for the Spring of 2015 from October 6th to November 7th.  Any applications submitted outside this time frame will not be considered.

As an intern, you will be required to work a minimum or 15 hours per week and will be given a schedule of work assignments. Typically, you will rotate jobs each day so you are able to get an understanding of every role in the newsroom. You will work on the assignment desk, work out in the field with reporters and photographers, edit pieces, and assist in producing newscasts. You may work more hours if your schedule permits.

- The program must be coordinated with a college or university where the student would receive academic credit for his or her work at our station. The station will submit a report of the student's performance to his/her faculty advisor or department head which may be used in determining the amount of academic credit the student shall receive.
