CBS is proud to offer internship opportunities designed to provide field experience for students pursuing careers in television broadcasting and related fields. Our internships will expose you to industry professionals and promote both your personal and career development. Some internships are designed to expose a student to one specific department or project whereas others will allow for the student to rotate between departments.

We offer a limited number of paid internships throughout the year (winter/spring, summer and fall semesters). We generally receive more applications than we can accommodate so the selection process is highly competitive. Internships are approximately 12 weeks in duration/20 hours per week, determined by the supervisor. Transportation costs, meals, and any other financial obligations are the sole responsibility of the individual intern. Interns are expected to dress appropriately for the business environment.

    I would 100% recommend an internship at KDKA or the CW. I was an intern for the assignment desk at KDKA during the summer of 2011 and it was the best internship I could possibly ask for. As a television journalism major at West Virginia University, I am constantly told how important internships are for experience and for a resume builder. Even if you are not interested in being a news reporter, there are so many jobs in the television industry and this internship is an ideal way to get exposure to those jobs! If you are serious about having a successful future in television, what better way than to learn from the best! Pittsburgh is a top 23 television market and I believe KDKA is number 1 in that market compared to the competition. I learned so much and met so many fantastic people during my internship! In fact, thanks to my internship with KDKA, I was picked to be a member of the Pittsburgh CW Green Team! I am proof that an internship CAN lead to an AWESOME job! I consider KDKA/ The CW my family and I am forever grateful for all of the opportunities and experiences this internship has given me. I sincerely mean that this is a FANTASTIC internship. I cannot stress it enough– if you want to be successful in television, you MUST do internships and from personal experience, KDKA/ The CW are the PERFECT PLACE for an internship. Since my time at KDKA and The CW, I have moved on to a new job in television and several of the people I work with now have had internships with KDKA and have all had the same positive experience!
