Loyola University / Communication Internships

Television: Plum TV

Plum TV operates channels on Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard, in the Hamptons, Vail, Telluride, and Aspen. Each channel operates out of the local market, designs its own local programming to highlight the issues facing each particular community and has historical stories of the place and how the influx of visitors has changed over the years. The centerpiece of each station’s programming is The Morning Show, a two-hour, daily talk show carrying interviews with local luminaries and celebrity visitors along with looking at the day ahead. Each station also has extensive coverage of the many events that make these communities special (film and wine festivals, downhill contests, concerts, polo matches, regattas, and dogsled races to name a few). Additionally, each channel displays a continually updated ticker of essential community information such as weather, ferry cancellations, beach conditions, recent snowfall, and traffic tie-ups. Furthermore, exceptional, original content with broad geographic appeal to the Plum TV audience is carried in all of our markets.

Because Plum is different, we need a different type of intern. If you want to fetch and make coffee all day, you need not apply. If you want to be an integral part of a team in a growing company and to surround yourself with some of the top entrepreneurial minds out there, let’s see if you have what it takes.

Working for Plum is a fast-paced opportunity to learn while contributing to a brand new multi-media network. So you might find yourself making live tv, documentaries, arts series, political talk, or news gathering. You will learn what it is like to build a business from the ground up.

Requirements: Our internship has been designed for juniors and graduating seniors. Please note that there is a limited number of graduating senior intern spots (only one per market). If you are a junior applying please note that you need to be registered for an internship credit through your school. You will need to supply documentation of your eligibility to participate in the internship.

For the summer internship you MUST be available to start prior to Memorial Day and remain on through August 15th or start by June 10th and continue working through Labor Day. This internship lasts the duration of the summer and housing will be provided. Please check out our website www.plumtv.com for more information on our internship.

*Please note that you are allowed to request a market of personal interest to you, but this is in NO way a guarantee of placement within that market. You MUST be open to the idea that you could be placed in any one of our markets. However, if you have a family history or existing connections in a certain market make sure to let us know, but again we cannot guarantee you placement at that location.
