About PBS NewsHour

Produced by MacNeil/Lehrer and aired on PBS, NewsHour with Jim Lehrer has brought news and analysis to viewers for over 30 years. The NewsHour has continued to evolve with the times, with the introduction of an interactive website and, starting in fall 2009, a new format and new name, PBS NewsHour. The show continues to experiment with new distribution platforms, new ways of telling stories and sharing resources through the PBS system, bringing its mission of fair and balanced coverage to the technologies of the future.

NewsHour accepts interns on an as-needed basis, so positions and duties vary greatly. Some past internships have included graphic design, in which participants learned how to produce broadcast news graphics, and an online internship that had interns working on the online version of NewsHour, gaining experience in online production, writing and audio editing. Interns can work in any department where needed.


Open to college freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors, grad students and recent college graduates.
