Intern Night draws 60 students

Panelists discuss internship opportunities Oct. 20 at WCCO-TV.

About 60 students from Minnesota colleges and universities joined the Society of Professional Journalists on Oct. 20 for the organization’s annual Media Intern Night.

The students gathered at WCCO-TV headquarters in Minneapolis and met with intern managers from the Associated Press, KARE 11, the Star Tribune and other media outlets — networking and learning about internship opportunities across the state.

SPJ’s Minnesota pro chapter hosts the event each fall.
