What does our department do?
Anderson Cooper 360 is a fast-moving, surprising and provocative alternative to the typical network evening newscasts. Backed by the global resources of CNN, Anderson's anchor desk is Central Command for a 360-degree look at world events -- covering not only the day's top stories, but the fascinating, the unexpected and the underreported.

What will you be doing?  
Interns gain insight into the editorial process while interning at CNN NY. They strengthen their research skills while contributing to the show and participating in daily and futures meetings. In production, interns learn how to transcribe tape, dub video, use the various CNN databases, write for air, and work with producers from story inception to finished package. Interns may have the opportunity to accompany producers on stories in the field. Interns will book and greet show guests and assist in basic Administrative tasks. Intern's schedules will vary and shift throughout their internship so they can participate in all aspects of the show.

What do we need from you?
Candidates should be passionate about news, self-motivated, able to multitask, have a good attitude, and be able to function well in fast paced, high volume environment.
