FOX 5 KSWB offers a variety of paid internship opportunities for students interested in careers in broadcast television. Our internship program provides students hands-on experience working with talented broadcast professionals. In addition, interns may earn the chance to shadow news crews in the field and produce their own intern newscast. Currently there are opportunities to intern in the following departments:

News interns will learn the basics of news writing and/or have the opportunity to apply classroom writing skills in a real newsroom. Interns will help with script writing, script formatting, segment producing, guest coordinating, and logging sound bites. They’ll also help the assignment desk make phone calls to research stories and learn writing for the Web. Interns will receive feedback from seasoned news writers, producers and reporters to improve writing and communication skills. Interns may also get the opportunity to work on an intern newscast — anchoring, reporting, producing and writing their own show as a special project.
