Paid Journalism Internship
Media Organization: Fresco News
Fresco News is a crowdsourced news platform with a focus on media. We utilize our own user
base as well as sources such as Twitter to provide news organizations with a seamless way
to source, verify, and license breaking news imagery coming from the millions of smartphones
around the world. We are able to provide organizations such as CBS with a breaking news
photo of a protest well before traditional photo agencies even pick up the phone to call a
photographer to the scene.
Fresco News is looking for people with a knack for innovation, social media, news and photojournalism to join our content team as night and weekend content management interns. (This is not an editorial internship.)
You'll be working with us to discover the stories that matter and deal with those who want to share those stories with the world, all in real time at the speed of breaking news. You have to be in NYC and be able to commit working nights and weekends at a high pace. We cover news 24/7 so we are especially looking for people available to work overnight and early morning shifts that begin at 4am. Previous journalism and social media experience is recommended. This is a paid internship with room for growth.
