Turner Sports is seeking an energetic and versatile editorial sports intern for NCAA Digital. This is a great opportunity for candidates looking to gain experience in digital sports journalism as well as gain an expectation of what the day-to-day work is like. NCAA Digital Editorial interns write, edit and produce original content for NCAA Digital covering all 90 NCAA championships.
In this role, you’ll be asked to produce a wide range of work – from the very basic publishing of wire stories, press releases and weekly polls to generating your own original stories. You’ll learn how to best lure readers with effective headlines and teases for all delivery – desktop, mobile, newsletters or partners. You’ll be asked to write quick daily “buzz” posts across a variety of subjects. You’ll develop a strong understanding of social networking sites and how they can help us reach more readers as well as help develop stories. You may be asked to cover NCAA Championships on site for the website and digital products. We’re looking for someone ready to keep his or her feet moving and work independently. Enthusiasm, risk-taking and collaboration are highly valued. It’s also important that you’re versatile, and able to adapt to the fast changing digital landscape.
