mediaite-larger-2-1-650x461

Mediaite is looking for an ambitious, energetic, newshound to analyze the names, the brands, the gossip, the digerati of news, politics, and entertainment​ from a female perspective​. You would be writing opinion pieces and news stories using any and all of the tools of digital storytelling: Words, video, pictures, social interactions, book excerpts, you name it. But in the end, you are a media critic​ with a focus on women’s issues​.

If you think you have what it takes and want to impact the news cycle then we want to talk to you.

Requirements:

– 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 thrive under pressure, and ​are​ ab​le​ to find issues bubbling up in the media world before they have been widely reported​

– A clear understanding of how Twitter, Facebook, user-generated content​ ​and viral videos are shaping the news cycle

– Strong news judgment and an eye for underreported content and ideas. Can you find the nugget of interest that no one else has discovered?

– The ability to write an “objective” news article at one moment, and transition into writing an opinionated column the next

To Apply:

Send us an email (jobs@mediaite.com) with your resume and cover letter explaining why you’re suited for the position. Please include links to articles you’ve written and edited.
