In 1951, WGBH began as WGBH Radio in Boston. The media force now consists of three public radio stations and three public TV stations across the state. Its reach extends far beyond New England, as WGBH produces almost one-third of PBS’s nationwide primetime TV and online lineups. Its Antiques Roadshow program is the highest-rated primetime television show on PBS, with 14 million regular viewers.
Internships are available with various WGBH programs and departments, including American Experience, Antiques Roadshow, Arthur, Basic Black, Frontline, Greater Boston, La Plaza, national programming, Nova, pledge production, research and the WGBH Media Library. Duties range from office support to answering viewer mail, to research and production. In addition, WGBH’s education department hires interns to do research and rights clearance, shut down products, handle office work and participate in production.
