DescriptionPBS’ To the Contrary
Hosted by veteran journalist Bonnie Erbé, To the Contrary is a national news analysis program, focused on all issues affecting women, families, and communities of color.
The To the Contrary staff is comprised of four full time employees, offering our interns the opportunity to learn all aspects of production and get hands on experience. This is a great chance for someone interested in social media development and television producing. Interns see firsthand how a weekly TV show is put together from start to finish. They also get to meet many of today’s most influential women, including politicians; leaders of various national organizations; political commentators; and authors.
Responsibilities include social media development, assisting show executives and producers with SEO and online marketing, managing Facebook, Twitter and instagram accounts, and any other social media networks as they appear on the mediascape. This requires identifying appropriate news stories thereby honing skills such as news judgment as well as learning ways to get our message through the chatter. Other responsibilities include: writing TTC extras, press releases, and other outreach materials, news research, logging and digitizing b-roll, transcribing interviews, reading and responding to viewer email, and administrative duties. As a final project all interns write and edit at least one story for the web or the tv broadcast.
Interns work 2-1/2 to 4 days a week. The schedule is flexible but being available on Friday between the hours of 10 am – 3 pm is critical. This is NOT a paid internship, but must be used for college credit.
