Position Summary:

Marketplace is on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country and we're looking for an intern to join our growing Brand team.

As the most listened-to business program in the country, we connect the dots for our audience on the economy, tech and culture through unexpected angles on the news. The Marketplace portfolio of programs has nearly 15 million weekly listeners and we're recognized as an industry leader in meaningful and creative storytelling. The Brand team has a pivotal role in our strategic growth, and our intern will have a front-row seat as we continue our multi-platform transformation to reach more audiences across broadcast, social, digital, events, podcasts and more.
