How can I get started in broadcast journalism?

    So I'm not exactly sure if this is the right forum to post in but here goes:

    I'm currently a fifth year student and until the summer, I had no idea what I wanted to do. Last year I pretty much wasted my work experience on working in some clothing shop.
    Now I have a pretty heavy inclination towards broadcast journalism but I don't really know how I could get more experience before college. I've only written a small review for a youth magazine but I want to do more, so does anyone know any radio or t.v. networks, big or small, that would take on summer work experience? Likewise, could anyone who works in broadcast journalism offer any advice on courses, next steps after college, etc?
