The Fellows will work on projects such developing communication strategies for show- and network-level social media programs for TBS, TNT and TCM, specify content and identity opportunities for audience engagement, develop creative plans for fan interactions and monitor social media platforms, among other things.
The Social Media Fellowship is a partnership between Grady and Turner Broadcasting and is a great opportunity for students who are interested in social media and engagement.
“I applied for the Grady/Turner social media fellowship because I saw it as a great opportunity to learn about how networks effectively use social media to promote their TV shows,” says Idowu.
“I am really looking forward to the fellowship with Turner Broadcasting,” says Parrish. “I truly love social media and analytics, so it's exciting to be able to combine that passion with such a well-established and creative company like Turner Broadcasting.”
“It’s great to know that even though I am a soon-to-be alum, Grady is still providing me with opportunities to prepare me for my career.” she comments.
“To be able to work with my college professors and Turner Broadcasting during the same summer makes this experience truly a privilege,” Ware adds.
“Ultimately, I hope to gain more knowledge about the ways social media impacts brand image and how consumer involvement spurs innovation. I am beyond excited for this opportunity and I'm sure it will be an ineffable experience,” says Dossani.
