This Just In…NBC News Will Start Paying College Interns

Good news! Starting this spring, NBC News will begin paying its interns!

According to the Maynard Institute, a “well-placed source at the network” has revealed the big news. Details are unclear because the number of available internships and actual salary amounts haven’t been determined.

Perhaps other news outlets will begin paying their interns as well?

Keep in mind, according to the piece, ABC News and CNN pay their interns and CBS News and Fox News create arrangements for the college/university to provide course credit. Read more

New Media Blog Coming To The Market?

Our sister publication, FishBowlNY, has an interesting update to our Dan Abrams story, with exclusive content from Abrams and his right-hand woman Rachel Sklar. Check out the story here.

Media big shots are finally realizing the power of the internet. So of course the first thing they all want to do is run out and harness it for their own personal gain. First Arianna Huffington, then Tina Brown, now it looks like we may have Dan Abrams as well.

The New York Observer reports that chief legal analyst for NBC News has been meeting with top tier bloggers and writers around New York. “I think it’s very possible that I will pursue an on-line Web property that will include some level of blogging of and about the media,” Abrams acknowledged yesterday. Hopefully he’ll learn to spell “online” the correct way before he drops into the medium.

While Abrams would not say who he has met with, industry spies report the list includes Gawker political editor Alex Pareene, Advertising Age columnist Simon Dumenco, former New York senior editor Jesse Oxfeld, Portfolio blogger Jeff Bercovici, and The Observer‘s John Koblin (gee, wonder how The Observer got the scoop on this story).

So far there are no confirmed hires. It’s not clear is that is because of the tone of the blog venture itself or if its because journalist in general had a very poor reaction to Abram’s first internet project that he announced in November.

Last year Abrams announced he was launching a “global strategy firm” that would employ thousands of working journalist, bloggers, authors and recently laid off journalists to consult with corporations who were interested in forming new media strategies. While media professionals did sign up in droves, some questioned the ethical implications of such a position.

“I am always trying to find vehicles for my community of experts,” said Abrams. “If and when I create an additional web property of and about the media, the editorial side of it will be entirely separate and distinct from Abrams Research, the business.”
