TV Production Internship Opportunities

NPT provides unpaid internships for students who are interested in gaining hands-on experience in television production and equipment operation.

Due to the Covid 19 virus, we will not be taking interns for the summer 2020. We will reevaluate the situation late summer regarding the internship program for the fall of 2020. Thank you for your understanding.

Internships may be tailored to meet specific areas of interest. However, the basic focus of the program is behind-the-scenes production work, providing students with experience in both live and taped shows. The internship also includes non-broadcast related activities, such as studio set-up and maintenance.

Responsibilities include:

  • Run prompter
  • ​Edit weekly promos and other non linear editing
  • Grip and studio set-up work
  • Assist on field shoots
  • Log interviews
  • Research​
  • Other production related tasks as time permits


Motivated and committed individuals will benefit the most from this program. A positive attitude and a willingness to learn are essential.

Interns are required to receive college credit hours in exchange for internships.

IMPORTANT: Candidates must be available for at least two 5 hour blocks of time during normal business hours.

If you are interested in an internship in the NPT production department, please send an email with resume including course history of television production classes and particular area of interest to: internships@wnpt.org
