The deadline to apply for Spring 2023 is Friday, October 15.

The internship program at WSLS 10 is designed to provide students with the opportunity to enhance their knowledge in various fields of communication by receiving hands-on experience through News, Weather, Sports, Digital, and Production. The paid program provides structured opportunities coupled with appropriate supervision, evaluation and feedback for students enrolled in institutions of higher learning to gain experience in a station’s day-to-day operations.

Internships are offered during the spring, summer and fall semesters. The spring and fall semesters last four months and the summer lasts two months.

Interns cannot work more than 20 hours per week. Each intern’s hours will need to be tracked accordingly.
