Summer Intern - NBC News Specials

Type of Business: NBC News internship opportunities give students the real world experience and exposure to news production at one of the world's leading media companies. Internships are the perfect way to gain experience while learning what a career at NBC News might hold in store for you.

As a company, we highly value our ability to provide students with these amazing opportunities. Interning at NBC Universal provides students with a platform to showcase and develop their talents, skills, and experiences. In addition to the experiences gained from the internship, the company provides various sessions throughout the semester to develop students professionally and expose them to senior leadership.

The NBC News Specials unit covers breaking news and live events, including long-term political stories. This summer, the unit will focus on conventions and election planning. Interns work directly with producers to research stories, prepare graphics, coordinate logistics, and screen and log tapes.
