Stay Tuned is unlike any other public affairs program in the local St. Louis market and a unique television format among PBS stations nationwide. This internship is a wonderful opportunity for a student interested in the significant political, social, economic and cultural issues that face the city of St. Louis. Interns assist in producing the program, doing research, greeting guests, observing journalists’ news gathering in and outside the station and learning techniques of news and editing, writing and reporting.
