As the sports media industry increasingly blurs the lines between news, public relations, advertising and digital media, we prepare students to encounter this ever-evolving professional world. From external internships to media production for Temple’s own sports teams, the Claire Smith Center helps to connect students with diverse corners of the sports media landscape.
There is no better way to experience the fast-paced world of sports media than to immerse yourself, early and often. Many students do this through internships: taking photos, announcing plays and even helping out on event days. See below for a sampling of just a few of the internships Klein students have pursued in sports.
- CMST Student Brian Mermelstein Interns with the Kentucky Derby for a Second Year
- MSP Student Erik Jesberger is the Voice of the Reading Royals
- CMST Student Sydneé Carter Pursues Year-Long Internship With The Baltimore Ravens
Once you have an internship or two under your belt, you’ll be ready to hit the big leagues with a paid position. Taking these types of jobs during your college years is crucial, as this will allow you to have a competitive amount of experience when you hit the job market. See below for some examples of jobs our students have landed in sports media.
