WTVR CBS 6 offers unpaid, college-level internships to broadcast journalism students (and related majors), enrolled in their junior or senior year or graduate program, who qualify for academic credit at their school.
Internships at CBS 6 are provided to a limited number of students each semester and candidates will be asked to interview — in person — prior to receiving an internship.
The CBS 6 internship program follows a syllabus that gives students “real-world” experience in the television news industry. Students follow the weekly assignments and are required to complete a project due at the end of their internship. The students are exposed to the following departments:
- Master Control
- Website development, design and content management
Students wishing to Intern at CBS 6 should compile and submit:
- Resume and cover letter
- Letter certifying academic eligibility from a college/university adviser that also outlines any college/university requirements.
- (2) letters of recommendation from an academic professional
- Transcript (copy is allowed)
