Do any sports broadcasting companies offer internships?
I am interested in becoming a sports broadcaster and was wondering if there were any possible internships or job-shadow opportunities so that I could get a better understanding of what the job entails. #sports #sports-marketing
I believe the majority of the sports broadcasting companies offer internships, you can also look for local news in you area and try to reach out to the sports department in case you find difficulty getting a chance with big ones. I have started on ABC affiliated and worked regularly in the sports department shadowing and editing sports packages, I believe that helped me a lot get jobs throughout my career that were related to sports.
ESPN has a very good internship program.There are opportunities throughout the year in various cities around the country. The program offers positions in many different departments so it's not just a broadcaster based internship.
