The Whistle Editorial Internship
The Whistle is a new type of sports network for the new generation of sports fans.
Our content is driven by our mission and gives kids and families a unique experience in sports media. The Whistle is launching content across six platforms – online, YouTube, Xbox, mobile, VOD and cable. Currently, The Whistle has a half-hour show on NBC Sports Network. The Whistle is partnering with leagues, top pro athletes, leading advertisers and non-profit organizations.
The intern’s main responsibility will be to supervise and help build a growing network of remote contributors. Currently we have 10+ bloggers who write 1-2 articles per week. This position will stay in constant contact with these contributors, set their editorial calendar, brainstorm story ideas and edit their work before it goes live on TheWhistle.com. This intern will also continue to grow that network by recruiting more remote contributors across all sports.
More specifically, tasks at hand will include
· Set weekly editorial calendar for our remote contributors
· Edit content and format in our CMS
· Recruit new contributors
· Assist with social media dissemination of articles
· Occasionally contribute original content to TheWhistle.com
· Help brainstorm YouTube segments and integration for our contributors
