Intern With Us

WCBI-TV is proud to partner with area schools to offer an internship program available to junior and senior communication students. We believe an internship program not only benefits students’ needs through experienced gain, but also benefits our station.

We provide a positive internship experience by allowing students to dive into their department of choice and take part in meaningful work. Also, interns can look forward to being mentored by “in-the-business” professionals.

Internships are available but not guaranteed in the following departments and positions:
Digital, Creative Services, Production, News, Sales, Sports, Weather or Other.

Our internships are split by semester to align with your class schedule.
(Dates subject to change)
