KIRO-TV/NJC Internship

Website: Student Opportunities


In partnership with the Northwest Journalists of Color, KIRO 7 will offer one recipient the opportunity to be a paid Intern for the KIRO 7 News Department.

An Internship at KIRO 7 provides the opportunity to be embedded in the news environment to learn about the behind-the-scenes workings of a TV and digital newsroom. Interns will be researching stories, writing scripts, and occasionally following KIRO 7 news crews in the field. In addition to learning in the newsroom, this intern will also meet people from other departments to understand the business of the television station as a whole. This paid position is 20 to 30 hours a week and starts in June.

The intern will be recommended to KIRO 7 by a panel of judges, including members of the station’s staff and NJC program volunteers, and the final selection made by KIRO 7 management.
