About the Role
The Sports Intern will work with the ABC22/Fox44 Sports team and other newsroom employees and receive feedback on their efforts.
Our internship is for qualified students studying Broadcast Journalism, Video Production, and other Communication degrees. Duties of a Sports Intern may include assisting and observing the coverage of sports events and news conferences, 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.
Interns must be college/university students and receive college credit for the internships. Students are expected to obtain and complete any forms necessary to receive credit for the internship experience. The intern’s college/university academic advisor (and institution guidelines) determines the amount of credit available (and subsequently, the amount of time an intern will be available on a weekly basis). 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.
