Internship & Employment

Talk Radio News Services offers one of the most comprehensive college internship programs in Washington for students interested in journalism and/or the political process.

An internship at the Talk Radio News Service is a hands-on experience, where interns are treated as staff members. It is an opportunity to learn reporting, writing and digital editing for live on-air radio work. This internship involves quite a bit of work, but you will leave with examples of your on-air and written work.
