About Roll Call

In print since 1955, Roll Call is written specifically for members of Congress and their staff. It is a platform for them to "communicate with one another across the aisle and between the chambers." Roll Call concentrates on editorial opinions, political banter and news around Capitol Hill. It also provides an insightful perspective into the inner workings of Congress.

Interns work in the editorial department on various projects ranging from general clerical duties around the office and assisting editors with various assignments, to researching and writing their own stories. Interns leave Roll Call with bylined features and news stories, and with experience working alongside full-time reporters on research for investigative stories.


Open to current college students, recent graduates and grad students. International applicants are welcome. Reporting experience is preferred but not necessary.
