Three outlets will receive internship funding assistance for 2024, according to the National Turf Writers and Broadcasters. The organization will assist in funding internship expenses for positions with Thoroughbred Daily News, XBTV and the New York Racing Association.

The organization had planned to award $5,000 to two outlets, but was met with a number of quality applications and decided to commit a total of $6,000 to three.

“Last year we were happy to support two print media-based internship positions, and this year NTWAB is thrilled to assist media outlets in providing broadcast experience to interested students or industry newcomers,” said Natalie Voss, chair of NTWAB's internship committee. “NTWAB is committed to sustaining the future of our profession by encouraging the creation of learning opportunities in racing media.”

The Thoroughbred Daily News' internship position is already filled and underway, allowing a student from the University of Kentucky to gain experience in producing video and written content, as well as social media marketing.

XBTV is currently searching for an intern to work at Santa Anita Park, assisting with morning and afternoon broadcast production, copywriting, social media and scheduling. The internship will begin Feb. 22. To apply by Jan. 15, click here.

The NTWAB will also support a broadcast production internship with the New York Racing Association, which runs its summer broadcasts in partnership with FOX Sports. The internship would include assistance with scheduling guests, shooting video content, research for stories and some shooting and editing for the right candidate. The position will take place at Saratoga Race Course over the summer of 2024. For more info., click here.
