“My work at the television station is really challenging. We have a new program coming out next week and everyone is excited for the first broadcast. All the production and editing has been hard work but I have learned so much. The staff is really friendly and I feel like part of a team. I love New York!”
One of our favorite placements is at the largest Spanish speaking television network in the world. Based in New York, our students have the chance to learn about the issues speaking the Spanish speaking community while at the same time developing important production skills.
For our television and multi-media internships, we work with community news and entertainment stations that allow our interns to receive hands-on experience in the news and entertainment industry. Interns work together with leading producers and on-air talent to generate news and entertainment pieces.
We also partner with university television stations and local public broadcasting. Smaller stations provide the best job duties. Students do on-the-ground reporting, editing, and marketing.
While most positions are behind the scenes, some students have had on-air assignments reporting on a story they researched.
TV work provides several multimedia opportunities. Specifically, the station’s website is continually being updated and interns have helped provide content for the site. Some film or editing experience is helpful, but we have contacts that can use the skills you have and help you develop new ones along the way.
Using the latest camera and editing equipment is a great way to stay current on technology and discover if this field is your calling.
