2022 interns with Julie Lonon, Associate Director and Coby Cartrette Hennecy, Executive Director of the ETV Endowment.


I'm super passionate about going out into the community, meeting people and hearing their stories. This internship reassured me that I want to go into news reporting.

Madison Floyd, 2021 ETV Endowment Intern

I would absolutely recommend this internship to journalism and digital media students alike. It allows you to be involved in the planning and execution of stories that will go online or on television. I was given a lot of freedom to work and treated like another member of the team.
