Internships

So you want to be an intern. That’s great! We love giving students an opportunity at furthering their career goals in a fun, musical and fast paced environment.

Here’s a little bit about CBS Radio. We encompass seven radio stations in the Charlotte market: Kiss 95.1, K 104.7, Power 98, WSOC 1037, V 101.9, and The Fan 610 AM. Most interns will spend time dabbling in all of the aforementioned stations. Whether you’re interesting in promotions, marking or digital we want you to have the most well rounded experience.

We offer two internships for you to choose from: Promotions/Marketing or Digital Content.

Promotions/Marketing Interships:

There are a few requirements for anyone seeking a promotions/marketing internship at CBS Radio.

  1. You must be pursuing a Communications or Marketing degree. Also, all internships must be for college credit.
  2. You must have a flexible schedule. We’ll work with your school schedule but plan to at least give up 10 hours a week, if not more.
  3. You must be available some nights and weekends. The music industry doesn’t always work on a 9-to-5 schedule. Sometimes we have to be at a late night concert or an early morning artist interview or even a Saturday night show at a club. It all depends on what comes through town and we can’t guarantee you’ll be home before dinner every night.
  4. You must be enthusiastic with a love for music and socializing. If you aren’t a people person, this probably isn’t the internship for you. We spend a lot of time talking to the public about our music stations and getting people to tune in. You are the face of CBS Radio. When people see you at events or shows, they want to talk to you, see what you’re up to and if you’re in a bad mood that puts a negative impression on our listeners.
  5. You must have at least a working knowledge of these programs: Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel. You will be trained on other programs if needed but a general understanding of Microsoft Office suite is essential.
  6. You must be able to lift up to 50 pounds and stand for longer periods of time. By no means is that a daily occurrence, but once you’re on the streets you may have to lift tents, speakers or anything else to get events set up.

Digital Content Internships:

There are a few requirements for anyone seeking a digital content internship at CBS Radio.

  1. You must be pursuing a Communications or Journalism degree. Also, all internships must be for college credit.
  2. You must have a flexible schedule. We’ll work with your school schedule but plan to at least give up 10 hours a week, if not more.
  3. You must be available some nights and weekends. The music industry doesn’t always work on a 9-to-5 schedule. Sometimes we have to be at a late night concert or an early morning artist interview or even a Saturday night show at a club. It all depends on what comes through town and we can’t guarantee you’ll be home before dinner every night.
  4. You must be enthusiastic with a love for music and writing. Our main goal is to write, write, write. We spend lots of time updating our websites, developing content and getting information out to the masses. If you don’t like writing, this internship isn’t for you.
  5. You must have at least a working knowledge of these programs: Adobe Photoshop, Sony Vegas (or any video editing software that you own) and WordPress. We’re a little more lenient on the knowledge of WordPress because we can teach you, but we prefer you know how to work a photo editing program with ease.
  6. You must provide 3 writing samples with your resume. They don’t have to be Pulitzer prize winning novels, but three 200-300 word samples will be just fine.

Email your resume, cover letter and writing samples (if necessary) to Rebecca.Gray@cbsradio.com.

Good luck and we hope to hear from you soon!
