Journalism Internship

Media Organization: Mercury Radio Arts

Company Description

Mercury Radio Arts is Glenn Beck’s fully integrated production and media company. It features Mr. Beck’s third highest-rated radio show, books authored by Beck and others, live stage-shows, a news and opinion website The Blaze, and a brand new subscription-based internet TV network GBTV.

GBTV, which launched on September 12th, features original programming including Glenn’s daily 2-hour live show, exclusive documentaries, news, information, and other entertainment exclusive to GBTV. All programs will be broadcast in HD and will be available live or on-demand across multiple viewing platforms. The network launched earlier this month and already has more paid subscribers than Oprah’s network has viewers.

Glenn Beck is the host of the 3rd most listened-to radio show in America, reaching 10 million weekly listeners. He has authored seven #1 New York Times bestsellers across nearly every genre. Glenn recently ended his Fox News television show, which, until its conclusion, was the third highest show in all of cable news despite being on at the non-primetime hour of 5pm. In 2010, Glenn held a non-political event in Washington, DC called Restoring Honor which brought hundreds of thousands of people to the mall at the foot of the Lincoln Memorial. This August, he made an equally bold statement with an event at the Western Wall in Jerusalem, Israel. Glenn’s websites, including Glennbeck.com and his online news and opinions website TheBlaze.com, receive 3-4 million unique visitors per month.

Job Description

Intern duties would include researching, compiling data, editing and proofreading stories, answering fan mail, running errands, reporting, gathering, obtaining first-hand information, and networking. Please note that journalism majors may be asked to write articles, blog, etc. regarding the various subjects including politics, world news and the current election.

Interns will have the opportunity to experience and be a part of the effort that goes into producing, maintaining, and running both a nationally syndicated radio show, a developing news website, as well as a brand new, cutting-edge network.
