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.

Each week, Science Friday’s radio producers interview scientists from around the world about their groundbreaking and newsworthy achievements (and we report on the occasional weird animal discovery).

Bonus points if, like us, you’re obsessed with the microbiome. And while you may not be an expert on quantum entanglement, you’d at least enjoy a week’s worth of phone calls about it. Oh, and do you follow us on Twitter?

Please email a resume, cover letter with links to three examples of your work (audio, video or written is fine); and one 150-200 word SciFri story pitch to: Alexa Lim, radiointern@sciencefriday.com, subject: “Summer 2019 Radio Internship.”

This is your chance to be a part of the action—Science Friday is currently offering a summer radio production internship.

Each week, Science Friday’s radio producers interview scientists from around the world about their groundbreaking and newsworthy achievements (and we report on the occasional weird animal discovery).

The ideal candidate will have some journalism experience, preferably in a radio or podcast setting, and an unquenchable curiosity about science and the way things work. You’ll be a stickler for detail, a fluid and fun writer who triple-checks facts, and skilled at selling your ideas to other science geeks. Bonus points if, like us, you’re obsessed with the microbiome. And while you may not be an expert on quantum entanglement, you’d at least enjoy a week’s worth of phone calls about it. Oh, and do you follow us on Twitter?

Please email a resume, cover letter with links to three examples of your work (audio, video or written is fine); and one 150-200 word SciFri story pitch to: Alexa Lim, radiointern@sciencefriday.com, subject: “Summer 2019 Radio Internship.”

Fox News Multimedia Reporters Training Program
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 team from Fox will be at the School on Tuesday March 26. Come learn what the Reporters Training Program is all about and learn about network opportunities. Tentative time will be 12 noon and 5pm. RSVP by March 18.

Mock Media Exercise
Palo Verde Generating Station west of Phoenix seeks volunteers to act as mock media for the upcoming Palo Verde exercises. There are two exercises (hopefully you can do both), first one is 2/5/2019 and the second is 3/5/2019. The February exercise is a dress rehearsal for the March exercise, basically the March exercise is formally evaluated by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and FEMA. PV is utilizing the February exercise to identify any areas for improvement for the March exercise.

Specific details cannot be divulged at this time, but the overall scenario is that both exercises are in response to an emergency at Palo Verde that results in an actual or potential release of radioactive material. State and county agencies will be playing and activating their respective emergency operations centers as the scenario dictates. Palo Verde, along with state and county agencies, work together in the Joint Information Center in order to release media statements/briefings to the media and public that are timely/consistent.

Below are a few references that can be accessed publicly and will give you some insight into preparedness/response activities in the unlikely case an emergency happens at Palo Verde that would require protective actions. You will see the reference to Emergency Classification Levels (ECL) a lot. We utilize ECLs to categorize the severity of an emergency at Palo Verde, which in turn makes it easier for offsite agencies to interpret the level of action that may be required on their end for response. Below is quick reference for review.

Please arrive at the Joint Information Center (600 North Verrado Way, Buckeye, AZ 85326) at 830am to receive a quick players briefing from myself. Upon turning into the parking, take a right and then enter through the east side of the building. Lunch will be provided. If you know of anyone else that would be interested, please feel free to pass along this request, my only ask is that they RSVP with me so I can ensure there are enough (FREE) lunches. If desired, I can take volunteers on a quick tour of the facility prior to the exercises, I will be showing a few people on February 4 at 4pm if anyone is interested.

Unusual Event
A minor problem has taken place. no release of radioactive material is expected. County officials will be notified of the problem. You will not be expected to do anything.
Alert
This is also a minor problem. Small amounts of radioactive material could be released inside the plant. County officials will be notified of the problem. You will not be expected to do anything.
Site Area Emergency
A more serious problem has taken place. Small amounts of radioactive material could be released near the plant. If you need to take protective actions, sirens will be sounded. Government Officials will tell you what you need to do over radio and television broadcast. If you hear the sirens, go indoors immediately and turn on your radio to KTAR (620 AM or 92.3 FM), KMVP (97.8 FM) or other local radio or television stations to hear instructions from government officials.
General Emergency
This is the most serious kind of problem. Radioactive material could be released outside the plant site. Sirens will be sounded if you have to take any protective actions. You should turn on your radio or television immediately and listen for information on what you need to do. If you hear the sirens, go indoors immediately and turn on your radio to KTAR (620 AM or 92.3 FM), KMVP (97.8 FM) or other local radio or television stations to hear instructions from government officials.

If you want to volunteer, please contact Travis Icard.

Mock Media Exercise
Palo Verde Generating Station west of Phoenix seeks volunteers to act as mock media for the upcoming Palo Verde exercises. There are two exercises (hopefully you can do both), first one is 2/5/2019 and the second is 3/5/2019. The February exercise is a dress rehearsal for the March exercise, basically the March exercise is formally evaluated by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and FEMA. PV is utilizing the February exercise to identify any areas for improvement for the March exercise.

Specific details cannot be divulged at this time, but the overall scenario is that both exercises are in response to an emergency at Palo Verde that results in an actual or potential release of radioactive material. State and county agencies will be playing and activating their respective emergency operations centers as the scenario dictates. Palo Verde, along with state and county agencies, work together in the Joint Information Center in order to release media statements/briefings to the media and public that are timely/consistent.

Below are a few references that can be accessed publicly and will give you some insight into preparedness/response activities in the unlikely case an emergency happens at Palo Verde that would require protective actions. You will see the reference to Emergency Classification Levels (ECL) a lot. We utilize ECLs to categorize the severity of an emergency at Palo Verde, which in turn makes it easier for offsite agencies to interpret the level of action that may be required on their end for response. Below is quick reference for review.

Please arrive at the Joint Information Center (600 North Verrado Way, Buckeye, AZ 85326) at 830am to receive a quick players briefing from myself. Upon turning into the parking, take a right and then enter through the east side of the building. Lunch will be provided. If you know of anyone else that would be interested, please feel free to pass along this request, my only ask is that they RSVP with me so I can ensure there are enough (FREE) lunches. If desired, I can take volunteers on a quick tour of the facility prior to the exercises, I will be showing a few people on February 4 at 4pm if anyone is interested.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

Waste Management Phoenix Open Golf Tournament

Social Media Caddies Needed
Working together in small teams, WMPO Social Media Caddies will engage with fans to capture tournament moments such as fan photos, use of fun props, food and beverage (non-alcohol) and zero waste messaging for use on WMPO social media. The caddies will encourage use of tournament hashtags and social channels. The images that are captured by Caddies will be sole property of the Tournament and used to supplement posts on social channels throughout 2019. Caddies will be provided with official WMPO Social Caddie t-shirts and access to general grounds of the tournament. Use of cameras on personal phones may be required (still TBD), but mobile chargers will be provided as support. This would be the inaugural year of this program, amplifying the need for personable, social-savvy, sport-loving, enthusiastic Caddies to get the program off to a great start. A document outlining expectations and samples will be provided prior to tournament week.
