PBS Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly






The national weekly PBS television program “Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly” offers summer, spring and fall semester internships to students at accredited institutions. The unpaid internships are based in their Washington, DC office. Days and hours can be flexible depending on the student’s schedule. Interns take on a variety of tasks including attending news events and interviews with correspondents, producers and camera crews, assisting producers with background research, transcribing interviews, selecting sound bites for news stories and contributing to the development of online and social media content. The interns get to observe all aspects of putting together an award-winning national television program, including the editing of segments, archiving video and recording of the program in our studio. Students with a background in religion and/or video production will be given priority in the selection process.

“Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly” is the only national television news program that consistently covers ethics and religion, giving the topics the in-depth coverage often missing from other news outlets. It covers the topics broadly and objectively, as journalists, looking at all traditions and expressions of spirituality. The half-hour program is broadcast weekly on some 250 PBS stations across the country. The program is a production of WNET in New York.
