Mediaite Is Now Hiring a Full-Time Sports Media Editor!

Mediaite is looking for an ambitious, energetic, sportshound to analyze the sports media in the same way the rest of the site focuses on politics and news. You would be mining for those “holy cow” sports media moments and using any and all of the tools of digital storytelling: Words, video, pictures, social interactions, you name it.

If your passion is sports and you think you have what it takes, then we want to talk to you.


  • You should have a clear, concise, and in-depth knowledge of the world of sports media including online personalities, major cable and broadcast analysts, leading columnists, and general sports thought-leaders.
  • You should thrive under pressure, be able to write quickly 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.
  • You should have strong news judgment and an eye for underreported content and ideas. Can you find the nugget of interest that no one else has discovered?
  • You should have the ability to write an “objective” news article at one moment, and transition into writing an opinionated column the next.
  • Hours:

    This is a full-time, salaried position. Flexibility to occasionally work nights and weekends a huge plus.


    Our offices are located in New York but working out of the office is acceptable.
