Michigan Radio is looking for a digital media intern to help produce and improve the content available at michiganradio.org, and to help maintain the station’s social media channels.

This is an opportunity to work with a fun team in a fast-paced environment. The ideal candidate will be connected to social media trends, aware of the changing digital media environment, and, of course, have an eye for news.

The digital media intern will work with Michigan Radio reporters and format copy, add photos or videos, add links, build maps, create polls, and come up with other creative content to improve story presentation.

They will also work with reporters and the Multimedia Producer to prepare stories for online publication ahead of time. Depending on the projects that come up, other duties could include gathering and taking photos, shooting video, and gathering or producing audio.

The digital media intern will work closely with the Social Media Producer to help further develop our engaged, online audience. A sense of humor is a plus.
