Emmis Communications is looking for hard-working, ambitious college students who want to take a deeper look at the world of radio and everything that goes with it. Interns will be asked to dedicate an average of 10-15 hours per week to their internship focus. Interns will spend time shadowing various employees, attending meetings and learning more about how the radio puzzle fits together. Internships are unpaid and must be done for college credit. Read on below for more in depth descriptions of our various internships at Emmis and feel free to contact us with questions. We look forward to seeing your resume!


Sales marketing interns will learn firsthand the sales process from initial client meeting to closing the deal. Throughout the semester interns will have the opportunity to participate in this process by actively assisting Account Representatives and Sales Marketing Directors.


Creative content interns will explore the nontraditional side of radio that is quickly becoming a huge part of marketing. During this internship, interns will be working with all forms of digital media including but not limited to video, social media and web design.


Brand marketing interns will focus their efforts on learning how we meet the needs of our listening audience. Interns will spend time with the Promotions Directors and Programming staff taking an in depth look at who our listeners are and how we market to them.


Event planning interns will do just that, learn to plan events! Interns will spend the vast majority of their time working with individuals throughout our company in producing and executing all of the elements that go into our large scale community events.


News reporting interns can choose between a focus in news content or news production. News content interns will work directly with WIBC reporters both on and offsite discovering how they write their stories. News production interns will work directly with the WIBC producers to see how topics go from discussion to on-air.


Programming department interns have the opportunity to see the everyday decisions that go into keeping a station on air and keeping listeners tuned in every day. Interns will shadow side by side with each station’s programming department to see various tasks including music scheduling, station imaging & content brainstorms. A major in radio or communications is not a requirement, but a friendly, hard-working, outgoing personality is absolutely necessary!
