Mediaite is looking for an ambitious, energetic, newshound to cover the names, the brands, the gossip, the digerati of news and politics through the prism of media. This person will be our early bird editor, breaking the first news of the day and setting the stage for our all-day coverage.
You’ll be responsible for writing stories using any and all of the tools of digital storytelling: words, video, pictures, social interactions, book excerpts, you name it. Is it fascinating? Is it what people are talking about? Is it a great rumor? Can you find the nugget of interest that no one else has discovered? Then publish it. Fast!
If you think you have what it takes and want to change the news cycle then we want to talk to you.
You should have a clear, concise, and in-depth knowledge of the world of news, politics and media, including online personalities, major cable and broadcast networks, leading columnists, and general thought-leaders.
You should thrive under pressure, and excel when stress levels are at their highest.
You should have a clear understanding of how Twitter, user-generated content, and viral videos are shaping the news cycle.
