Internships & Volunteering


PATV is always on the lookout for interns to assist us in providing public media to the Iowa City area. Interning is a great way to gain work experience and learn various aspects of a broadcast television station. Former interns and volunteers have gone on to careers in fields such as journalism, the film industry, and national broadcast television. If you’re a high school or college student, interning can also be a great way to gain course credit.
