WXIX offers internship opportunities to eligible students, to provide hands-on learning experience for students looking to gain knowledge and insight about the broadcasting industry.  Students are eligible for an internship by being enrolled at a college or university, and by receiving academic credit from that school for an internship.  Internships are offered in a variety of departments at the stations, including News, Marketing/On-Air Promotions, Programming, Sales, and Production.  All internships are non-paid, so students must be receiving academic credit to work or observe at the stations.  Hours can be flexible, to accommodate class schedules and school requirements; however, most interns are usually required to attend a minimum of 15-20 hours per week. 

 

During the reporting period the station offered internships to 10 students in News, 2 students in Sports and 4 in Marketing from the following colleges:  University of Cincinnati, Ohio University, Xavier University, Northern Kentucky University,  Cincinnati State, Brigham Young University, Loyola, University of Notre Dame, University of Missouri, Miami University
