Two undergraduate broadcast journalism students have been selected to receive paid summer internships through the Illinois Broadcasters Association's Multicultural Internship Program. Taylor Smith '12 will be interning in the newsroom of WLS-TV in Chicago. Tiffany Champion '12 will be interning in the newsroom of WCIA-TV in Champaign. 

"I am very excited for this summer and the opportunity to represent the College of Media at ABC 7," said Smith, who will also be attending Oprah Winfrey's induction into the Illinois Broadcasters Association Hall of Fame on May 3.

The Illinois Broadcasters Association's multicultural program has existed for more than 20 years and places students in paid broadcasting internships across Illinois. Recipients are competitively selected from applicants from universities statewide.
