Michigan Radio is looking for a digital media intern to help produce web content for Stateside, our daily news show, and to maintain the show's social media channels.
This paid internship is in our Ann Arbor office, and starts in early January, 2020 and runs through May, 2020.
This is an opportunity to work with a fun team in a fast-paced environment. The ideal candidate will have an eye for news, be aware of the changing digital media environment, and be connected to social media trends.
Applicants should have strong writing and communication skills and be self-motivated and dependable. They should also have a demonstrated interest in digital news and multimedia production. Knowledge of multimedia software applications (i.e., Adobe Suite) and photography/videography experience is a plus.
The digital media intern will work with Stateside staff to present interviews on the Michigan Radio website by translating on-air content into web posts, adding photos or videos, as well coming up with creative ways to share the interview online and on social media.
They may also collaborate with the digital news team for Stateside series and projects that require extra digital production. Depending on the projects that come up, other duties could include gathering and taking photos, shooting video, and gathering or producing audio.
The digital media intern will work closely with Stateside producers and the digital news team to further develop the show’s engaged, online audience. A sense of humor is a plus.
Here’s what we can offer you: the opportunity to work with award-winning public radio producers in a major market, an environment where no idea is too big, and the occasional free food.
If interested, please email a cover letter, resume, and at least two writing samples to Stateside Producer April Van Buren (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Digital Director Jodi Westrick (email@example.com).
