The CNN Creative Marketing department creates all of the on-air and off-channel promotion for the networks of CNN Worldwide. The on-air promotion for our programming airs domestically and internationally on CNN, HLN, CNN International, CNN en Español, CNN.com, CNN Airport, our sister Turner networks, and other networks via our affiliates. Off-channel promotion is placed domestically on billboards, posters, and within other forms of print media such as newspapers and magazines. Internship Description: Interns selected for this department will primarily support the on-air promotion teams in their daily production of topical promos and some image promos. The internship will begin with training classes in iNews, MediaSource and Mira so that the intern will be able to navigate all of the video resources available to producers here at CNN. They will support the producers by reviewing online video footage and fulfilling that footage to a production server or external drive, so that the producers can focus on other areas of production and stay on track to meet their deadlines. Where possible, interns are also given the opportunity to shadow producers during the entire creative process, which may include creating storyboards, brainstorming ideas, assisting with film/video shoots, drafting scripts, choosing music, and sitting in on actual edit and audio sessions. The intern experience is designed to mimic the kinds of tasks we would assign to our Production Assistants or Associate Producers.


It is preferable that intern applicants be majoring in broadcast journalism or a related marketing field. They must be proactive and independent. This is a fast paced department and although we will create a loose itinerary designed to give interns exposure to all of our production teams, we expect them to perform as a member of whatever team they may be assigned to, ask questions when projects are Not clear, and actively seek other opportunities to participate within the department such as assisting on video shoots, or attending brainstorming meetings, etc. Proficiency with Final Cut Pro (or similar editing software) and Microsoft Office is expected. For an intern to get the most from this experience we strongly encourage a 40 hour per week commitment. We can and will accept a part-time commitment but since breaking news occurs unexpectantly and production schedules can change quickly, opportunities to grow from the overall experience and to contribute to the department would greatly be enhanced with a larger commitment.
