If you are interested in broadcasting, an internship could get you off to a great start! WZBG offers internships for students interested in the radio industry. Interns are NOT paid. Students at any college level can apply for an internship, high school seniors can apply as well if the high school has an internship program. Internships usually last for one semester, however, other arrangements can be made if necessary. An interview may be required.
To apply, send a resume along with a letter of intent (including the hours you would be available and the department in which you would prefer to intern) to:
Attn: Jennifer Parsons, General Manager
