Zazoom Internship Program
The Zazoom Internship Program provides a unique opportunity for eligible college students to gain hands on experience in the development, production and post-production of dynamic short form news for the web and other digital platforms (see www.buzz60.com). This internship offers valuable work experience for students who are pursuing a career in the news and communications industries and who want to learn from successful professionals in those industries. Zazoom (www.zazoomvideo.com) is a young, growing company so the ability to multi-task, to work well under deadlines and a great attitude are all necessary.

ABOUT ZAZOOMZazoom was founded by three highly respected TV journalists who worked at the networks and at local New York news stations for many years. During those careers, they won an aggregate 40 Emmys; several Edward R. Murrow awards, and the Walter Cronkite award, among others. The company produces and distributes short-form stories ranging from breaking news, pop culture, entertainment, lifestyle and sports.

Interns work primarily out of the Zazoom newsroom/studio in the historic Broadway-Chambers landmark building at 277 Broadway in New York City.
