New York Times Audio Internship in New York, New York

Job Description

The New York Times is seeking a podcast junkie to intern with our Audio team.

You’re an avid podcast listener, and ideally someone who already has audio skills: you’ll assist producers in and out of the studio on " The Daily at ," our flagship daily news shows, and other programs. Pro Tools experience is preferred.

In the past, our summer intern has helped pull archival tape for "The Daily," log tape for an ambitious narrative project and sat in on all editorial meetings. We’re also interested in your ideas about how to grow our audience on social media: What’s the best way to promote audio on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram? How should we frame the content? Who is the desired audience and what else are they currently consuming? How can we better engage our community of listeners?

We want someone who knows the industry and the competition, and is excited to help make podcasts that break the traditional mold.
