Democracy Now! 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.
We are currently accepting applications for our Digital Fellowship.
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 Digital 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 digital processes 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 7:00 a.m. ET to coincide with the live daily TV & radio newscast at 8:00 a.m. ET.
1 year, beginning summer 2019
Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis as received, so applying early is strongly encouraged. All applications must be received by May 5, 2019.
Candidates who have not reached this experience level may consider applying for one of our Internships.
Applicants must have a valid US work authorization and be available to work full-time in New York City for the duration of the one-year fellowship.
Democracy Now! is an equal opportunity employer. People of color, people with disabilities, women and LGBTQ-identified people are encouraged to apply.
