About the Program

Launched in 1981, the ICTN College Internship Program has successfully trained college level students in television production. The students get extensive hands-on experience with all aspects of producing a broadcast program. Interns work with ICTN staff who produce numerous regularly scheduled programs, along with an average of 40 specials a year.

Interns start with simpler productions, such as studio programs and remote public meetings. They are encouraged to advance into other areas, including operating ENG equipment, lighting and editing. Successful interns, in the past, have shot stories with reporters, directed remote productions and produced short specials.
