Cox Media Group Washington Internship Program
The Cox Media Group is in search of tomorrow’s brightest broadcast reporters and producers to work as interns in our bureau in Washington, D.C. This is a rare opportunity to train alongside experienced journalists enterprising and producing Washington-based news for our 11 television stations, six radio stations and four newspapers across the country.
This is not an internship for someone who only wants to make photocopies, take coffee orders and answer phones all day.
Cox D.C. interns spend the semester as part of our news team and are responsible for seeing stories through from start to finish. Interns research and enterprise story ideas, conduct interviews on Capitol Hill, log sound bites, edit video and write copy.
In exchange for a semester of challenging work, we help you produce a resume reel with a standup and three packages.
Our internship is unpaid and you must provide proof of college/graduate school credit to be considered. We require interns to work at least two days a week. Priority is given to those available additional days.
To apply or ask questions, email Patrick Terpstra at firstname.lastname@example.org and attach your resume and cover letter. Tell us about your news experience and why you would be an ideal fit in our newsroom. Also, include the days you are available to work and when you would begin and end your internship. Be sure to include the name of your university, references, the professor who will give you credit for the internship and a phone number where you can be reached.
Application deadlines: Fall August 1st Spring December 1st Summer April 1st
