Frontline Digital Special Projects Internship



GBH enriches people's lives through programs and services that educate, inspire, and entertain, fostering citizenship and culture, the joy of learning, and the power of diverse perspectives.

FRONTLINE is PBS’s flagship investigative documentary series. We explore the issues of our time through powerful storytelling and our investigations have helped breathe new life into terrorism cold cases, freed innocent people from jail, prompted U.N. resolutions, and spurred both policy and social change. Today, our dedicated cadre of reporters, producers, and digital makers report across platforms — from our documentaries and podcast series, to long-form written narratives and multimedia projects. In an age of 24/7 breaking news, we remain dedicated to thoughtful, incisive accountability journalism. We are committed to presenting more voices, perspectives, and experiences across our platforms. To foster a work environment that values inclusiveness and reflects the broad perspectives of the American public, we encourage qualified applicants from all racial, ethnic, religious, and socioeconomic backgrounds, sexual orientations, gender identities and functional limitations to apply, especially those from historically marginalized communities.

Over the course of the internship, the special projects & video intern will assist FRONTLINE with its award-winning digital video and multimedia journalism. Past projects include interactive stories ("Un(re)solved," “The Last Generation”), innovative storytelling (“The Virus at Sea,” “Drawn from Memory”) and incisive social video (“The Last Call”)  — work that has been recognized by Emmys, Peabodys, duPont Columbia Awards, and Webbys. The intern will contribute in a variety of ways, including but not limited to: research and fact-checking, transcribing interviews, creating graphics and thumbnails, and uploading and distributing video on digital platforms. They may also get the opportunity to assist with the creation of content depending on their level of experience with AVID Media Composer, After Effects, Photoshop, and in-app Instagram tools.
