“Ithaca provides hands-on opportunities to produce and create live TV as soon as you enter as a freshman, giving you a chance to experience live TV as you learn. The internships available provide valuable networking and professional experience. I’ll never forget my experience interning with NBC Sports in Torino, Italy for the 2006 Winter Olympics…the 1st group of Ithaca students to experience this opportunity.”
