Do you want to help decide what’s on TV? Do you want to know how popular TV shows are, and how many people are watching?
Join our team at KUTV Ch. 2, Utah’s No. 1 station! KUTV and KMYU, Sinclair Broadcast Group (SBG) stations, want to help motivated college students prepare for the future.
Our program is designed to be a “hands-on” experience, with on-the-job training. Each student will be assigned an immediate supervisor to oversee their work. Our goal is to have students participating in our organization, to help them shape their career choices as well as assist our professional staff in delivering on the things that matter to our viewers and clients. Interns are not compensated other than course credit and the receipt of on-the-job training hours.
All students, especially Juniors and Seniors majoring in Business or Communications, are welcome to apply and will be considered. We will consider students from other related fields of study including: government , politics, education, social sciences.

Finance and statistics majors also considered.
