DESCRIPTION: WGBH informs, inspires, and entertains millions of people throughout New England -- at home, at work, in the classroom, in movie theaters, and more. Boston's last remaining independent TV station, WGBH offers a range of productions (among them, Greater Boston, Basic Black, and La Plaza) that focus on the diverse local community. WGBH 89.7, Boston's NPR arts and culture station, offers a rich menu of classical, jazz, blues, spoken word, and more. WGBH is the leading producer of PBS prime-time programs (Nova, Masterpiece, Frontline, Curious George, Arthur, WGBHNews, The World, The Takeaway) and online content, a major producer for public radio, and a pioneer in educational multimedia and in technologies and services that make media accessible for people with disabilities. OCS invites you to trek to their Boston office for a tour, panel presentation of professionals who work in areas such as media, marketing, production, and journalism, and to learn about internship and full-time opportunities. Lunch will be provided!
