WVUA 23 is a great place to get hands-on experience and to figure out if television news is the right field for you! At WVUA 23, interns are an integral part of what we do. We are owned by the University of Alabama and located in Bryant-Denny stadium. No prior experience is required to intern with WVUA 23, but experience may help you to get accepted into our program more quickly. Once you join the WVUA 23 intern program, the sky is the limit! Our most experienced interns perform the same duties as our professional reporters and producers. Skill level and dedication determine each individual’s rate of progress, and our professional staff members serve as the “coaches” for our interns. If you qualify for Work Study at the University of Alabama, we may be able to allow you to complete your Work Study at WVUA 23. Different departments within WVUA 23 have specific requirements for their internship application process. It is perfectly fine to apply to more than one department. Make sure you follow the specific guidelines on the application below.
If you are applying for an internship with WVUA 23’s Production, Weather, Sales, or Creative Services departments, applications are accepted all year. News, weather, and sports internship application deadlines are at the UA Engagement Portal link below.
