Production Internships


"Arts District" is a weekly program that airs on RMPBS that includes local and national content. Interns with this program/department will have the opportunity to observe, assist and will work directly with all aspects of local production, content development and the requirements needed to meet weekly deadlines.
Interns with the Arts District team will have a unique opportunity to work with a team of broadcast journalists who are passionate about sharing compelling arts and cultural stories with our Rocky Mountain region.  
“…I got to edit, write, shoot, and I even got to do voice work for one of the Happening Now segments that I wrote. It seemed there was really no limit to the opportunities we could have if we were willing and motivated team players. It was truly a joyful experience, one in which I felt valued and appreciated.”
