Great place to intern and pick up reporting experience

Intern-Reporter (Former Employee)
Arlington, VA

I worked at WJLA-TV

ProsThe people are all intelligent, driven and committed to their jobs and the station. They worked to improve my reporting and showed me how to do reporting from the ground up.

ConsThe hours can be tough but that's the nature of the business. Unless you try to find opportunities in the station to work with people you will spend a lot of time at the assignment desk.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep using the internship program to inspire new students to do reporting. Your reporters and anchors are great mentors for interns and being out in the field is the best way to learn.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
