Democracy Now! Fellowships are paid, full-time, temporary work placements to help early career journalists develop skills and gain experience in a daily live TV news environment. All fellowships take place at our Manhattan studio where we produce our daily news hour.
We are currently accepting applications for our News Production Fellowship.
Democracy Now! staff provide one-on-one mentorship and supervision to help Fellows maximize their exposure to a fast-paced newsroom and build their skills as a journalist.
A successful News Production Fellow will thrive in a deadline-driven daily news environment and be an avid consumer of daily global news, following a variety of news sources (both commercial and independent) on a daily basis. S/he will demonstrate a passion for Democracy Now!'s independent news mission and be a strong team player with a great attitude and a professional demeanor at all times.
The workday begins as early as 5:30am ET, to coincide with the live daily TV & radio newscast at 8:00am ET.
1 year, beginning by June 2017
Candidates without the required experience listed above may consider applying for one of our Internships.
Applicants must have a valid US work authorization and be available to work full-time for the duration of the one-year fellowship.
Democracy Now! is an equal opportunity employer.
