An internship at the Talk Radio News Service is a hands-on experience, where interns are treated like staff members. It is an opportunity to learn digital writing, reporting and editing for a national radio network. The Talk Radio News Service Internship is an excellent way to get a foot in the door in Washington, gain tremendous real-world media experience and to discover how political life ‘Inside the Beltway’ is really lived. The internship involves quite a bit of work, but you will leave with examples of your on-air and written work.

- Attending daily news briefings, press conferences and hearings on and around Capitol Hill.
