The Patriots are re-posting this opening. Here is an expanded position description:

The Somerset Patriots of the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball are accepting applications for a paid Broadcast/Media Relations Intern.

Compensation is $750/month and college credit can also be earned if applicable to the student.

Time Frame/Work Schedule:

(April 2020 – September 2020) Interns are expected to begin their internship as soon as they are done with classes for the spring semester and stay until one week before school starts the following year. Graduated seniors are expected to stay until the season has concluded. Recent college graduates are expected to work from the beginning of the season (April) until the season has concluded. Hours are full time. Interns are required to work the same amount of days and hours as the full time Front Office Staff. There are 70+ home games, additional outside events, and regular non-game day office hours that you will be required to work. This includes nights, weekends and holidays. Interns will be required to sign a document indicating their start/end dates prior to acceptance of the position. No vacations will be permitted during the season.

Candidates will work closely with the Vice President of Public Relations and the Director of Broadcasting/ Media Relations on a daily basis to help execute all of the requirements of the media relations department.

Broadcast Responsibilities:

* No.2 play-by-play and color commentary broadcaster for select home games
* On-air hosting of pre-game and post-game shows
* Contribute player interviews for radio and video productions
* Hosting of various SPN.tv video, social media and scoreboard content
* Assist in camera operation and overall production for live online games

Qualifications:

Ideal candidates will have one year of either professional or collegiate experience as a baseball play- by-play broadcaster. They need to be able to contribute to the organization both through broadcasting and the many other facets of working in minor league sports. Strong, diligent and detail-oriented writing skills are heavily preferred, as are experience with video production. Additionally, candidates will need to have positive attitude, unwavering work ethic and an eagerness to contribute to a fun, fast-moving work atmosphere that will require help outside of just broadcasting.

Please Note:

Candidates MUST live within commuting distance or have housing in the Bridgewater area for the entire summer.
