About C-SPAN

C-SPAN is a public service created by the American Cable Television Industry

To provide C-SPAN's audience access to the live gavel-to-gavel proceedings of the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate, and to other forums where public policy is discussed, debated and decided––all without editing, commentary or analysis and with a balanced presentation of points of view;
To provide elected and appointed officials and others who would influence public policy a direct conduit to the audience without filtering or otherwise distorting their points of view;
To provide the audience, through the call-in program, direct access to elected officials, other decision makers and journalists on a frequent and open basis;
To employ production values that accurately convey the business of government rather than distract from it; and
To conduct all other aspects of its operations consistent with these principles.


Political Programming Intern

June 2018 - August 2018 Washington, DC
“C-SPAN treats their interns like real employees who contribute to the company in important ways. Twice during the summer we had lunch with Brian Lamb and Susan Swain. Brian Lamb is the founder but he cares for each employee and he'll learn your name by the end of the summer and stop you in the hallway to say hi. I worked in the radio department and getting to be in the center of the news and go on field shoots and interviews was lots of fun. I visited the White House and the Hill many times throughout my 10 weeks there.”
