Political Reporters

Exploring This Job

You can explore a career as a political reporter in a number of ways. Working on school radio or television stations and newspapers will provide you with experience as a reporter. You can also try to find part-time work or internships with smaller radio and TV stations or newspapers, which will allow you to observe political reporters and other journalism professionals at work. Published since 1869, The Gale Directory of Publications and Broadcast Media is a leading source of information about U.S., Canadian, and international media outlets that is available in most public libraries. Finally, contact a local political reporter and ask to spend a few days shadowing him or her to get a sense of the work involved.
