Democracy Now! produces a daily, global independent news hour broadcast on more than 1,400 stations around the world.
Democracy Now! is currently accepting applications for our Social Media Fellowship. Apply online by May 6, 2018.
Fellowships are paid, full-time, temporary work placements to help early career digital media professionals 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.
Democracy Now! staff provide one-on-one mentorship and supervision to help Fellows maximize their exposure to a fast-paced newsroom and develop strong online and social publishing practices.
A successful Social Media Fellow will thrive in a deadline-driven daily news environment and be passionate about expanding the audience for Democracy Now!’s news and supporting its non-commercial, independent news mission.
Strong candidates will demonstrate proven news judgment and high ethical standards and be avid news consumers on social media. Fellows are encouraged to suggest innovation and improvements to our social media program based on their outside experience and current digital news trends. A love of podcasts, GIFs and video editing skills are a plus, but not required.
The workday begins as early as 7:00am ET to coincide with the live daily TV & radio newscast at 8:00am ET.
