Ithaca College Students Earn Olympics Internship with NBC Sports
Twenty-nine students from the Ithaca College Roy H. Park School of Communications will work as interns supporting NBC's coverage of the 2018 Winter Olympics, which will be held Feb. 9-25 in Pyeongchang, Korea. Eight of those students will be in Korea, while the remainder will work from the NBC Sports broadcast and production facility in Stamford, Connecticut.
The student interns will fill a variety of roles for NBC, from logging video to choosing which shots will be shown on television.
"Since 2006, Park School students have been selected by NBC as interns for their coverage of the Olympics. Now it's a tradition for our alumni who are covering the Olympics to seek out the current crop," said Diane Gayeski, dean of the Park School. "I'm so proud of the way our students and alumni support each other and spread our reputation as a school that prepares young leaders for the rigorous challenges of intense international media assignments."
