MetroTV Internship Program

No asset is as valuable as practical experience for someone entering into a career in television

You may find it difficult to gain needed experience while pursuing and paying for a valued education.

Metro TV provides interns with a fast-paced, hands-on video production experience. Interns work with professional staff to produce quality programming for Metro TV. 

Internship applicants must have at least a minimum level of production experience to qualify.  Metro TV staff will determine eligibility based on the applicant's level of experience, scheduling availability, aptitude and motivation.

Interns work in a professional environment, are expected to meet deadlines and produce quality video productions.


What opportunities are offered?

You have the opportunity to be a producer, director, reporter, editor, camera operator, promotion producer, audio engineer and more. 

MetroTV offers a comprehensive learning experience, with an opportunity to specialize in a specific role. 


What experience will an intern gain?

Interns interested in journalism will have the opportunity to report, produce packages and host programs to gain valuable on-air experience.

Interns interested in television production will be able to direct, edit, shoot, and produce programs while working with equipment used throughout the industry in remote and studio settings.

Interns interested in promotions will have the chance to create television and web promos.

Interns will work with other interns in the program alongside our experienced full-time staff in a small, comfortable atmosphere.


Internship Requirements

We require a 10-15 hour per week schedule for three consecutive months.  Interns must be available for some afternoon & early evening shifts.  Some weekend and evening work may be required.

We recognize that some students must have jobs and that class schedules are not very flexible; so we make every effort to accommodate a student’s needs.
