Fox Sports’ first-ever internship program is for young writers and journalists to help them get their first taste of Indian cricket.
Fox Sports has a long history of developing talent for their networks, but the program is the first for its network of Indian-language broadcasters.
“This is our first internship, and I think it’s the first one we’ve done in India,” Fox Sports editor-in-chief Andy Katz told reporters during the company’s annual shareholder call on Thursday.
The interns will be paid about $50 an hour and are expected to help fill the gap in the Fox Sports journalism department.”
We’ll see how that translates to the rest of our network.”
The interns will be paid about $50 an hour and are expected to help fill the gap in the Fox Sports journalism department.
The interns work at Fox Sports and are on-air for one day a week, but they’re also expected to work for as little as $1 an hour, Katz said.
“This is a really exciting time for us, a really great time for the talent,” Katz said, adding that he’d like to see more internships in the future for writers and reporters.
Fox also announced on Thursday that it has hired a writer to join the team.
The hiring comes after Fox Sports announced in April that it would be hiring a reporter to join its team of reporters.
Katz said he is excited about the internship, which will start on July 1 and run through July 31.
“We want to help these young writers to see the world,” he said.
Fox Sports, a cable network that’s also known as FSN, has long focused on India.
In April, the network announced a new sports program in India titled ” The Next Generation ,” which is available on-demand on a subscription basis.
