The Toronto Star has indefinitely suspended its core internship programs, as part of a list of new cost-cutting measures announced Monday.
“We have suspended the summer and year-long internship programs in the face of continued declines in advertising revenues, which have affected most news organizations in Canada and across North America,” Star spokesperson Bob Hepburn writes in an email. “We are taking these steps without affecting the employment of full-time Star journalists.”
