TV broadcast journalism placements

Television broadcast journalism placements in Mexico

Our TV placements are based at a large state run TV station and a private Cable TV company in Guadalajara. The TV stations are involved in a wide variety of programming, from news and current affairs to coverage of a number of entertainment and cultural events.

You might be based in the studio working as production assistant or researcher, or you could be with a camera crew at a press briefing or outside broadcast. The programs are broadcast in Spanish so a good level of Spanish language is essential, even if you would like to be involved in production.

Opportunities also exist in front of the camera but you must be fluent in Spanish if you would like to be involved in broadcast roles.

Accommodation on this project is with families, usually sharing with another volunteer. You will be joined in Guadalajara by others on our medical, teaching and business projects. For more click here>>

Roles include:

Researching the news wires for international events
Attending local press briefings and conferences
Interviewing members of the public and prominent people
Production assistant (camera, sound, editing, etc)
Script writing
Managing on-air talent


Excellent conversational Spanish (fluent Spanish for front of camera roles)
A serious interest in journalism
Good conversational English
Good ICT skills, particularly use of word and excel
Minimum age 17 years old (no maximum age)

This project is suitable for:

Those interested in broadcast journalism experience / internships
Those interested in production assistant experience / internships
Gap year students
Media students
Career breakers and those looking to try a career in media
media internships
Experienced journalists looking to expand their portfolio

Previous experience of media is not necessary but the projects are tailored to your interests and experience. We will ask for a CV and examples of previous published work. If you haven't had anything published, the editors of the publications will usually set you an assignment so that they can gauge your writing style and ability to work to assignment.

Combining projects

These placements can be combined with the film production, radio and / or print journalism placements in Guadalajara. We recommend at least a month on each placement.
