The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel was formed in 1995 when the two largest Milwaukee newspapers merged. Today, it has the second- largest metro market reach in the country—four out of every five people in metropolitan Milwaukee read the Journal Sentinel. Its circulation figures are about 217,755 daily and 384,539 on Sunday.
Mentoring and information sessions ensure that interns get on the fast track to working the newsroom. Interns are thrown into the pond with other reporters, vying for front-page stories. They work in departments including entertainment, local news, sports reporting, copy editing, graphic, layout, marketing and special events, online and photography.
Open to junior and senior journalism undergraduates (though younger students have been accepted) and recent college graduates.
