Newsroom Intern Duties

Although the knowledge and experience gained by each intern will be different, there are certain tasks each intern must fulfill if they are accepted to the internship program.

1. Story leads and follow ups: Because many story ideas begin with incoming calls, certain information should be gained if you answer our phones. Interns are to check with the producer and find out how to properly answer the phone.
2. Interns must gain hands on knowledge of our newsroom computer system.
3. Writing: Interns must write sample stories and submit them to producers.
4. Editing: Interns must learn the basic skills of editing.
