Hello, first off, I am not an expert in media careers, very limited experience; however, I suspect your approach can be similar to what it is for most jobs, any experience is good experience. Volunteer at local media outlets, if you're going to school, volunteer at the school "newspaper", and so on. Start your own blog and share it via social media, you never know who might take notice. If you are not already on LinkedIn, get on it, create a great profile (their are plenty of tools available to help you with that, consider the career you are interested in, I would definitely include writing samples) and identify other in media in general and/or individuals who have the type of job you want. Then, reach out to them for advice. You'll likely get a lot of no replies, but it only takes 1 or 2 to get you on the path.
