Internship Application

Posted: Updated:


The WNCN Internship Program gives you real-world experience and lets you become familiar with WNCN's organization and work style. WNCN works with colleges and universities to provide students the opportunities to apply coursework learned or taught in the classroom with practice in the workplace.

Student interns gain valuable experience by completing both project based work and hand-on experience in the WNCN Newsroom, Production, Sales, and Accounting departments. WNCN considers the use of interns an important recruiting tool. It is a feeder program to regular college hires. The program allows WNCN to identify high potential talent for future employment. However, there is no guarantee of hire after internship completion or graduation.

Requirements: The WNCN Internship program offers college students the opportunity to take a first step into the broadcasting industry. Interns at WNCN are un-paid, so Interns must be enrolled at an accredited four or five-year college or university leading to a bachelor or advanced degree and must receive college/university credit for their internship. The student must be able to provide proof of their college/university credit prior to starting their assignment.

WNCN seeks interns with a real passion for the industry for its internship program, and selection for the program is competitive. WNCN accepts both undergraduate and graduate students into this program. WNCN accepts students working toward a Broadcasting / Production, Business, Journalism, Communication, Marketing/Sales and/or Public Relations degree.

Internship Timelines: The student may work during the Fall, Winter, Spring or Summer college semesters based on student availability and department needs. WNCN understands that each college and university is on a different schedule. The internship dates are flexible and will be determined between the intern and internship coordinator. The following are typical dates of most internship periods.

Fall September-December
Spring March-May
Summer May-August
Resumes are continually accepted throughout the year. However, please refer to the following as a guideline for registration. Due to the high volume of resumes we receive we regret that we will only be able to offer a limited number of internships per quarter/semester. Applicants that apply at the beginning of the application period increase their opportunity for an internship as these positions fill quickly.

Fall May 1 - August 1
Winter August 1 - November 1
Spring November 1 - February 1
Summer February 1 - May 1
Please download and fill out the attached application (completely) with a letter of request and resume.
