Internship with Geoff Calkins/WKNO

From Geoff Calkins:


NEEDED: INTERN FOR TV SHOW.

So here’s the thing. I need help with the TV show I do every week on WKNO. And I have no money to pay for the help. Neither does WKNO. So the only compensation is the experience, and the rare pleasure (har!) of working with me.

In a perfect world, it would be someone who could do it for a while. Like, well into next year, barring death, the end of the show or a massive meteor strike.

It shouldn’t take more than 8-10 hours or so a week, if that. The duties would depend on the person’s abilities and interests, but they absolutely willl include helping to line up guests for the show. Indeed, that will be the central responsibility.

In addition, however, the intern might 1) learn to shoot and edit the “one question” segment of the show, 2) learn to shoot and edit pieces that could run during the show, 3) help publicize the show and 4) fetch me coffee.

OK, I just made up the coffee part. I’d feel ridiculous. But the rest is true, depending. It would be nice if this person were smart, literate, and creative. It would be nice if he or she were plugged into the Memphis sports world. It would be nice if he or she read the paper, listened to local sports talk radio and maybe even followed sports on twitter. In a perfect world, I’d find someone who could say, “Hey, Geoff, I just saw a story about _____ in the paper. Wouldn’t _____ be a cool get?”

Feel free to tell your friends. Or, maybe, your enemies?
