The North Metro TV internship program is intended to introduce students to the day to day operation of a community television station and the ongoing production of community television programs. It is hoped that this experience will supplement any formal education or career opportunities that the intern may be pursuing.
An internship with North Metro TV will provide a hands-on experience. The intern will work closely with North Metro TV staff and share many of the same duties and responsibilities.
