This process is handled by your college advisor. Typically payment to the college for the course credits is required. Our staff holds graduate degrees required to supervise Interns. We also welcome college students who just want hands-on experience. (temporarily suspended due to COVID-19)
Interns are supervised by WPAA-TV staff even if approved to work with local producers. A Producer is never a supervisor.
Policy: Producers can not supervise Interns. No Producer can represent that they are qualified supervisors for any interns with approved placements at WPAA-TV.
