The Fox News Multimedia Reporters Training Program is like no other program in the industry. Ten qualified candidates are positioned in ten different locations around the country to shoot, report, edit, and produce their own high-end content across Fox News platforms. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to develop and grow your journalism skills at the most powerful company in the news industry.
The Fox News Multimedia Reporters Training Program (MMR) is part of our company’s ongoing mission to invest in talent. It was implemented in 2011 to build a pipeline for the next generation of skilled, hardworking multiplatform journalists.
The Multimedia Reporters operate as one-person-bands with the ability to go live virtually anytime, anywhere. They are trained on top-of-the-line video equipment and streaming technology. Each day they gather news information, conduct live and taped interviews, write stories and deliver news reports on all Fox News & Fox Business media platforms. Throughout this two-year experience, the reporters are provided with the tools, resources and guidance to develop a comprehensive skill set that prepares them for future work in the field.
The MMR program begins with an intensive week-long, hands-on technical training session at Fox News’ New York City headquarters. The reporters are then dispatched to their locations where they receive daily guidance and feedback from management. Whether it’s an assignment manager reviewing daily pitches, a senior vice president evaluating production and writing skills or a veteran correspondent critiquing storytelling, we challenge the Multimedia Reporters to continually hone their journalistic skills and capabilities.
A COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY
Our highly competitive program identifies outstanding aspiring journalists who bring diverse backgrounds to news production and news coverage. The program represents Fox News’ strong commitment to the development of a diverse workforce.
The Multimedia Reporters program is designed to attract candidates of racial, ethnic, economic and geographical diversity, as well as candidates with disabilities.
MMRs are selected for the 2-year training program through which they receive mentorship, ongoing technical training and feedback to support their development as multi-platform journalists.
We’re looking for exceptional candidates who have a passion for news and the drive to succeed. Find out what it takes to be a Multimedia Reporter at the Fox Careers links below.
