Are you a hard-working journalism or communications student with a passion for radio who is looking for a credited internship? Are you looking to gain hands-on experience in the news talk and/or sports radio industry? Then look no further! We have several internship opportunities available at CJAD 800 and TSN 690 for the spring and summer of 2019.
CJAD 800 is Montreal’s leading newstalk radio station, bringing a wide range of human interest, local, provincial, federal and international news stories to the community.
TSN 690 is the home of the Habs, the Alouettes and the Impact, and keeps the conversation going for Montreal sports fans.
Bell Media has six spring/summer 2019 internship positions available at CJAD 800 and TSN 690 for promising future journalists, hosts, and/or producers. Depending on whether your interests lie in sports, news or both, we will divvy up your time between content producing, reporting, news, and sports.
What You Can Expect: Some of your tasks as interns will include: chasing and booking guests, writing scripts (ledes and questions) for hosts, editing audio, covering press conferences, as well as on-air contributions as needed.
