Sharyl Attkisson‘s new Sunday show with Sinclair Broadcast Group has a name.

It’s “Full Measure with Sharyl Attkisson.”

The 30-minute program is expected to debut in the fall.

According to, the show is seeking an intern “who is interested and wants to learn about investigative journalism who will be willing to work hard and support a startup broadcast.

Full Measure is seeking interns for this summer semester. Requirements: They must be in their junior or senior year of a four-year accredited college or university. They should be planning to pursue a career in news.

Attkisson, 54, was previously an investigative reporter in the Washington bureau of CBS News. She left in 2014 after working for CBS for 21 years. After she left, she was not quiet about what she didn’t like at CBS News — which was namely her belief that the network was too cozy with President Obama‘s White House. If the White House wanted a story killed, they knew just how to do it, she charged.

Potential interns: You’ve been warned. She has a third degree black belt (source: Wikipedia) in Taekwando so you better not even think of messing with her.
