AP Internship Program ‘As Good As Dead’

Our sister blog FishbowlLA is reporting that Associated Press CEO Tom Curley has confirmed the AP internship program is over as of the end of 2010.

We’d heard rumblings about this for a few weeks and it’s sad to hear that the rumors were true.

Richard Prince found out the program costs between $600,000 to $800,000 a year, and that the guild is advocating for the reinstatement of the internship program—a testament to how well-loved the program is, as usually established journos are wary of letting young fresh-faced interns take people’s jobs.
