Tim Russert Fellowship

Posted: March 24, 2009 by IUsec in Fellowships, Internships

On June 13, 2008, we lost a giant in the field of broadcast journalism with the sudden passing of our beloved Tim Russert.

 

To the American public, Tim was a trusted, reliable journalist not afraid to ask tough questions. To his colleagues, Tim was a steadfast leader and respected mentor to so many of his peers. In the days and weeks following his death, countless fellow journalists credited Tim for giving them the “big break” that launched their careers.

 

Now, NBC News would like to help a young journalist get their big break.

 

I’m pleased to announce The Tim Russert Fellowship. The fellowship is a one-year, paid position in the NBC News Washington, D.C. bureau.  The fellow will work on a rotational basis in key areas of the bureau including assignments on “Meet the Press” and with the NBC News Political Unit. Responsibilities will include assisting talent and producers, participating in news shoots, and story research. The goal is to give one motivated journalist the opportunity to be mentored by seasoned NBC News staff members and truly experience a yearlong “boot camp” in political journalism.

 

I am asking you to encourage the best and brightest graduating seniors to apply for this unique opportunity. We are looking for an all around outstanding student, who not only displays a talent for journalism but is also a proven leader dedicated to improving the community. NBC News will continue to sponsor the Fellowship for years to come as a lasting tribute to our friend, Tim.

 

The Tim Russert Fellowship applications and candidate requirements will be available on www.nbcunicareers.com from March 23 through April 10.

 

No one will ever replace Tim, but NBC News is committed to building a new generation of young journalists who will continue the Russert legacy.

 

 

 

 

                                                Sincerely,

 

Steve Capus

                                                                                    President, NBC News
