Paid Journalism Internship
Media Organization: Transmitter Media
Transmitter Media is a creative podcast company specializing in highly edited and beautifully sound designed work. We’re a team of producers who work closely together to tell fascinating and delightful stories. We’ve worked in a bunch of different settings and mediums, and we’re excited to share what we’ve learned with you!
Transmitter Media is looking for a thoughtful, highly motivated, and unflappable intern who can join us on a part-time basis in our Gowanus, Brooklyn office.
Application deadline: February 15, 2019.
Start date: April 1, 2019.
About the internship:
You’ll spend three months working closely with Transmitter producers learning hard and soft skills you’ll need to work in the podcast industry.
The internship will be part-time and paid ($18/hr), approximately 20 hours a week. You must be able to work out of our Gowanus office.
You’ll help produce podcasts for high profile clients like the New York Times and TED, and you’ll also help with shows in development. You’ll be doing all the work of a producer: Writing prep docs, sitting in on tapings, handling recording logistics, and cutting tape.
As our first ever intern, you’ll have the opportunity to help shape what this experience will look like for you. We are looking for someone with at least 1-2 years of experience telling stories (the student newspaper counts!) and who is interested in pursuing a career in podcasting.
You don’t necessarily have to have experience in audio, but you should be familiar enough with the medium to describe what you like and don’t like.
You should be a self-starter who isn’t afraid to dive into a brand new task for the first time.

If you are selected for the second round of the process, you will receive a short edit test that you will have a week to complete.
Then, five finalists will be selected for in-person interviews .
