Sinclair’s ‘News Reporter Academy’ Returns For College Students


Sinclair Broadcast Group’s News Reporter Academy, an interactive workshop for college students interested in pursuing a career in news reporting, is back.

The Academy will hold its next virtual session on March 30 from Noon-3pm ET.

Now in its second year, the News Reporter Academy, hosted by Sinclair’s corporate news operation, gives university-level students an opportunity to learn about working in a newsroom and interact with Sinclair’s news teams.

In the three-hour interactive session, students will learn the basics of news reporting and investigative storytelling, managing a social media presence, how to look and sound their best on-camera and how to package a resume and reel.

“After the success of Sinclair Broadcast Group’s Producer Academy, a workshop for students interested in pursuing a career in digital or broadcast news producing, which is now in its fifth year, the company developed a seminar for students focused on news reporting,” Baltimore-based Sinclair says.

The virtual workshop is open exclusively to undergraduate and graduate college students. Registration is limited to 150 students and an .edu email address is required.

Students must register in advance by March 25:
