WPIX, a New York television station and the flagship of the CW Network, seeks a paid intern for Spring 2010.
"Interns will learn and experience the operation of the assignment desk, field reporting, and pre-production," the ad states. "At the assignment desk, they will make beat calls (calls to police and other authorities to gather news). They will also interact with the Assignment Editor, as well as gather and process research materials. Interns will witness the breaking news process, assist the Assignment Editor with assigning crews and coordinate reporters and stories. Interns will have the opportunity to shadow reporters in the field, learn interview and story development processes as well as production in the field. "
