NY Times Needs “Super Tuesday” Primary Stringers

Jan 23rd, 2008 | By | Category: Audio Podcasting, Citizen Media, News Podcasts

Doug Kaye, founder of volunteer network PodCorps, has clued us in on another one-time opportunity for podcasters. The New York Times needs local “radio producers” to gather audio interviews on Super Tuesday, February 5th, 2008, in the following states:

Alabama
Alaska
Arizona
Arkansas
California (Northern & Southern)
Colorado
Connecticut
Delaware
Georgia
Idaho
Illinois
Kansas
Massachusets
Minnesota
Missouri
New Jersey
North Dakota
New Mexico
Oklahoma
Tennessee
Utah

Stringers are asked to create and edit the content quickly: “record, edit, and file several short interview clips early in the day, within a few hours,” and submit with a digital photo you’ve taken of each of your interviewees. The Times is looking to cover the primaries in a variety of polling locations, at different times of day, staggering the coverage chronologically and geographically.

Interested podcasters are invited to contact the Times reporter at amy dot oleary at nytimes dot com with the stringer’s location, whether they have a digital camera, and what time(s) during the day they’d be available. They estimate that most of the interviewers will spend 1-2 hours interviewing, and then edit and FTP their clips/photos to the Times as soon as possible.
