GPB is an 18 radio station, 9 television station network broadcasting to all of Georgia and parts of Florida, Alabama, Tennessee and South Carolina. Oh, and the world via the internet and our podcasts! Our Atlanta-based interns and adult learners get hands-on experience in the GPB’s news and radio departments.
Interns are currently enrolled in high school or college, or recent graduates who’ve been out of school for less than a year. Interns must work at least 10 hours a week on a set schedule and commit to a full semester.
Adult learners have been out of school for more than a year, but still want to have an internship-style experience of at least 10 hours a week on a set schedule. No compensation will be offered.
