ABC Forms Diversity Program for Aspiring Journos

ABC News is launching a Fellowship program to attract and develop aspiring journalists from diverse backgrounds for a “rigorous” and “rewarding” year-long opportunity.   Starting this July, future news leaders will rotate through several ABC News departments and broadcasts while mastering editorial, production, and newsgathering skills.  Participants from a variety of racial, ethnic, socio-economic and geographic backgrounds will work closely with an experienced ABC News mentor.

ABC is now accepting applications for a July 2, 2012 start date. Candidates must have a Bachelor’s degree, solid writing skills, shooting and editing experience and a minimum of two years of journalism experience to be considered.  Positions are offered on a rolling basis and participants will be employed by ABC News for a full year.
