WCA-TV relies on volunteers to help our organization in a variety of capacities. Interns provide WCA-TV with valuable work hours every week, and in exchange, our interns gain experience and training in all aspects of television production. Interns do not have to be affiliated with an academic program, but must commit to at least ten hours/week. Want to earn college credits? We’re happy to work with your college or university to ensure you get credit for your work with us. We offer internships in Video Production, News Reporting/Editing, and Radio DJ. These internships are unpaid.
