KCRG-TV Newsroom Internships


Interns have been selected for Spring, Summer and Fall of 2010.
Interviews for 2011 will begin October 2010.

Gazette Communications is dedicated to shaping and building the next generation of journalists. In this spirit, KCRG-TV9 hires college interns each semester to work in a broadcast environment.

KCRG-TV Interns will help write, edit, shoot video and produce news stories for air on all of the station’s newscasts. The intern will also operate the Teleprompter and answer the phone. The internship is structured with training and workshops but success and achievement are gained by self-motivation, flexibility and assertion.
