Fox 8 News accepts intern applications throughout the year. We have a number of areas where someone can specialize: on-air/producers; photographers; weather; graphics.
To apply, here is what is needed:
* You must be attending a school which will give the student, in writing, credit for the number of hours worked. You should see your counselor to obtain this permission. The school must also specify how many hours, per week, an intern must be at Fox 8 News.
* Once permission has been obtained, the student should call the Fox 8 News News Director at (504) 486-6161 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org for an interview.
* If accepted, a schedule will be set up with the intern and Fox 8 News. Interns are required to be at Fox 8 News no less than 4 hours at any one time since they may be sent to accompany reporters and photographers on stories.
* Interns at Fox 8 News are not paid. Instead, they receive school credit upon successful completion of their internship.
* Interns do not do any work which cannot already be performed by a paid employee. An internship is designed to expose the student to the rigors of the television business. It is then up to the intern to decide if the business is what he or she would like to pursue for a career.
