KIRO-TV is committed to identifying and recruiting a diverse group of up-and-coming media professionals. Through our Internship Program, KIRO-TV offers college students the opportunity to work in the newsroom environment to learn about the behind-the-scenes workings of a TV news program. Interns will assist the producers in researching stories and writing show scripts. Interns will also have the opportunity to accompany KIRO 7 news crews in the field on occasion. The program is open to college students.

Internship Requirements:

4. While KIRO-TV considers the Internship program format valuable in observing the student’s attitude, talents, and skills, it is understood that no guarantees are given for future employment.

5. Students will only be offered an Internship after completing a pre-employment drug and background screening.
