Mid-Career Interning: Faculty Going from Classroom to Newsroom. A Pilot Study.
Rosengard, Dana
Every year, thousands of college students head to television newsrooms to work as interns to learn from the professionals. Back on campus, they sit in classes and listen to professors who, many times, have not been in a television newsroom themselves for years and years. This research looks at faculty internships. In this pilot-study, the television news directors in North Carolina were surveyed to learn if they would welcome such interns into their newsroom, what they would allow them to do, how they see the college or university faculty intern as both a challenge and a risk. Results indicated that news directors would welcome the wisdom and contributions of mid-career interns. Included in this research are lessons learned from a small sample of faculty who have devoted part of their summer breaks working back in the field. Contains 15 references and 4 unnumbered tables of data. (RS)
