About Los Angeles Times

Since its founding in 1881, The Los Angeles Times has grown into one of the biggest urban dailies in the United States. It consists of foreign, national, state, business, arts and features, and sports news, all of which have contributed to more than 35 Pulitzer Prizes since 1942. The L.A. Times is published at both the Los Angeles-based Olympic plant and an Orange County plant in Costa Mesa. In 2000, The L.A. Times became part of the Tribune Co.

Interns work mostly in Southern California as business, news, sports and features reporters. There are also positions available in visual journalism and copy editing. The paper is large and can be intimidating to newcomers, which is why successful candidates usually have had a few internships elsewhere before The L.A. Times.


Open to all current college students, as well as graduate students. Recent graduates are eligible, but they must still be enrolled when they submit an application.
