    I remember this being posted last year. Kind of interesting to follow. I'm applying again. Who else?

    Newspaper: Orlando Sentinel
    Job listing: Sports Reporting Internship
    Contact (e-mail): Mr. Dana S. Eagles, Staff Development Editor deagles@orlandosentinel.com

    Information: Escape the classroom – and the cold – while writing for a sports section that the Associated Press Sports Editors has named one of the Top 10 in the nation.

    The Orlando Sentinel will select a promising college junior, senior or graduate student to work as a sportswriting intern during the winter of 2007. The 10-week internship will start in early January and will pay $525 a week. With Orlando Magic basketball, golf tournaments, baseball spring training and the Daytona 500, professional sports are at full speed during Central Florida's balmy winters. Working with our award-winning staff, you'll gain the skills that will make your journalism education complete.

    Candidates must have completed at least one earlier internship at a daily newspaper; be able to work 10 consecutive weeks; and have a valid driver's license and use of a car. Housing is not provided.

    To apply, please send a packet that includes: a letter describing your background, career goals and internship objectives (biographical essays are not needed); a resume with journalism-related references; and at least seven varied clips.

    Mail to:

    Mr. Dana S. Eagles
    Staff Development Editor
    Orlando Sentinel
    633 N. Orange Ave.
    Orlando, FL 32801

    The deadline for receipt of all applications is Oct. 16, 2006. No e-mailed applications, please.
  2. Anybody know anything about past interns here and where they've gone? I'm curious to know.

    Where the hell is Lynn when you need him?
    This is a great opportunity. Good people there, and the high-school editor is as good as it gets.

    Heck yes, great internship. I've always been a Sentinel fan, they cover friggin' everything in Florida despite only having the crappy Magic and UCF as true home teams.

    I'm pretty sure a girl from Northwestern got it last year. Can't recall her name.

    Point taken.

    But crappy Magic?

    Not anymore. They're going to take the league by storm this winter.

    And UCF had a nice 2005, FWIW.
  8. Who cares about what you cover? Orlando Sentinel is a truly fine training ground.

    You'll learn how to do great stuff, and how to do it right.

    Trust me on that one.

    So everyone went on to better things except poor Lyndsay Sutton? ;)

    Macur is an amazing writer. Truly one of the best around...

    How much does anyone want to bet that at least one of the interns Hoppes listed went to Western Kentucky? :)
