Jon R. Tuttle Journalism and Production Minority Internship

Oregon Public Broadcasting offers the Jon R. Tuttle Journalism and Production Minority Internship to increase participation of racial and/or ethnic minorities, as defined by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), who are traditionally underrepresented within public broadcasting. The internship will enable an outstanding student to spend the summer studying the field, full-time, in a hands-on environment. To encourage future generations of compassionate broadcasters and journalists, Oregon Public Broadcasting established the Jon R. Tuttle Journalism and Production Minority Internship in 1994. The internship is in memory of Jon Tuttle, one of Oregon's most respected broadcast journalists who passed away in 1991. To guarantee this special program, and to attract the finest journalism and production students to our region, OPB endowed the internship.
