Broadcast Journalism Internships

IHS will not be offering Journalism Internships in 2014. For a list of other organizations offering journalism opportunities, please check back or visit

Through the IHS Journalism Internship Program, you can work at a broadcast news organization or on a television or radio program of a major media outlet. Internships can involve researching stories, scheduling guest appearances, going out on shoots, and conducting phone interviews. You can use your knowledge of current events, history, and politics to help create programs, and learn how an idea makes it to prime-time.

"My internship at Stossel has sadly come to a conclusion. I wanted to thank IHS for this wonderful opportunity. Now that I have a taste for broadcast journalism, there is absolutely no chance that I'll ever be happy doing anything else."
