Annual Public Report-Broad Outreach
I. Internships and Education
1.) College Internship Program: Fall 2008- Summer 2009
Programming & CS:
Description: KNTV and KSTS College Internship Program offers a wide range of internship opportunities for students interested in careers in broadcasting. Our internship program provides students practical skills through hands-on assignments working with talented broadcast professionals who are willing to share their knowledge. Students have the opportunity to work in news, operations, sales, programming/creative services, finance, and human resources. Students receive college credit for participating in this program.
2.) EMMA Bowen Foundation Internship:
Total Students: 1
Description: Emma Bowen Foundation Intern Program was established by the media industry to help increase access to permanent job opportunities for minority students. The Foundation’s program is unlike other intern programs in that students work for a partner company during summers and school breaks from the end of their junior year in high school until they graduate from college. During that five-year period, students have an opportunity to learn many aspects of corporate operations and develop company-specific skills. NBC has the opportunity to guide and develop minority students with the option of permanent placement upon completion of their college degree. Students in the program receive an hourly wage, as well as matching compensation, to help pay for college tuition and expenses. Mentoring from selected staff in the sponsoring company is also a key element of the program. NBC currently has had one intern participating in the program since 2001.
II. Networking Conferences & Training
