What’s it like to cover a baseball game at the Mets’ Citi Field stadium? Or broadcast live from the NBC Sports studio?

Twelve LSA students are taking a behind the scenes look at both those experiences and more during a three-day flash internship in sports media, hosted by the LSA Opportunity Hub in New York City May 9 through May 11.

Flash internships are rapid, on-site experiences that provide students a chance to work and network with the top professionals in a given field.

The internship was created in collaboration with LSA alums Dan Steir, senior vice president at NBC Sports Group, and Mitch Rubenstein, president and executive producer of Ross Mobile Productions.  Steir studied political science at the University of Michigan; Rubenstein was an English and communications major. Each wanted to show students the advantages of a liberal arts education in their industry.

Other LSA alums working to introduce students to sports media during the flash internship include Tracy Wolfson, a sportscaster with CBS Sports and communications grad, and Adam Schefter, a reporter with ESPN who studied political science.

“This is an incredible opportunity for students—the connections they make and the knowledge they gain in just a few days is really unmatched,” said Elizabeth Pariano, director of U.S. alumni and employer engagement. “And because of how involved and committed our alumni are, students get access to workplaces in a way that informs their next career steps pretty significantly.”

Flash internships are completely free to students thanks to the dedication of LSA donors.
