Description

Interns may have the opportunity to learn and observe a number of functions within the department, such as learning and training on how The Row contributes to research, adding reporting and context to packages in production, as well as helping check facts in scripts for air.

The Row executive producers sign off on each TV package and original web offering. Researchers on The Row fact-check each script before it is cleared for edit.
