WUSF News is looking for interns for the Fall 2020 semester. We're seeking student journalists from around the country who want to learn and work in a professional newsroom.

Opportunities include our news reporting, digital reporting, and social media internships.

Applications for all Fall internships are open through midnight, Sept. 2.

Interns will work closely with our team of seasoned editors and reporters learning how to research, write and produce stories for radio and online platforms. It’s a place where students are treated like a real journalist from the start, assigned stories that matter to millions of Tampa Bay area residents.
