The Lipof Fellowship


Newton News is proud to offer The Lipof Fellowship at NewTV. This internship program is open to Junior and Senior college students who are majoring in Journalism, English, or Communications. The internship will enable students to get the hands-on, one man band experience necessary to enter the broadcast journalism world.

 

You’ll be shooting, writing, and editing stories for our weekly newscast. The successful candidate will learn non-linear editing using Final Cut Pro and will shoot with JVC HM-700U cameras.  Prior technical experience is a bonus but not a requirement.  The ability to write stories in a clear, concise, and compelling manner is extremely important. In addition to a $2,500 stipend, students may also earn college credit depending upon the specifications of their particular school. Each semester, one applicant will be selected to become a member of the Newton News team and have a resume reel ready by the time you’re done.
