Summer Internship-Missoula, MT

Who wouldn't want to live and work in Missoula for a few months in the summer? Here's your chance! We encourage you to put "Missoula" in a Google search. You'll see what we mean. Thei Missoulian is the most prominent news organization in Western Montana with Yellowstone and Glacier National parks in our backyard!

The Missoulian is seeking applicants for a FT 10-week internship over the summer for the Missoulian. The internship is open to news, sports, video/photo applicants. The start date is flexible, and this internship pays $15.00/HR.

Our collaborative, digital-first newsroom -- led by a team of editors committed to mentoring new reporters and growing local journalism - offers a variety of opportunities from breaking news to enterprise and project work. The Missoulian is part of the Lee Enterprises family of newsrooms, and we partner with four other newsrooms in Montana and a statehouse team in Helena to deliver the most comprehensive reporting of the state and its people.

Home to the University of Montana, Missoula is a vibrant city of about 75,000 people along the Clark Fork River. The city's welcoming and walkable downtown features unique dining, shops, galleries and more. There's a full assortment of national chain shopping and restaurants, too, plus the Southgate Mall anchored by Scheels, Dillards, and AMC Theatres.

The ideal applicant is creative, motivated, innovative, prolific, and deadline driven. We want our interns to walk away with a rewarding, real-world newsroom experience, a pile of great clips and the skills they need to develop into the next generation of journalists. We will provide an atmosphere of collaboration and support.

Qualified candidates should be inquisitive self-starters who are capable of producing compelling content for our digital and print platforms. Interns should feel empowered to find and pitch great stories about our increasingly diverse communities. We want multitaskers who can juggle multiple assignments and embrace all facets of multimedia storytelling. Applicants who are enrolled in a bachelor's program in journalism or a recent graduate of a program will be preferred. A valid driver's license, proof of auto insurance, reliable transportation and the flexibility to work some night and weekends are required.

Why Join Us?

Our interns will work alongside professional journalists, who will provide guidance, direction and support with access to Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists within the company.
