Barrett News Media needs a creative, passionate, organized, and hard working editor to work with our writing team, and manage our daily content. This position specifically focuses on news media industry coverage. There is zero involvement with our sports brand, Barrett Sports Media.
Daily duties for this position include finding and writing original news stories on the news/talk radio, news television, and news media advertising business, and creating unique ideas to generate interest in our content. You'll connect daily with our social media and newsletter editors to promote our work, and report directly to Barrett Media President Jason Barrett. Organization, strong fact checking skills, good grammar, and an ability to perform at a high level in a remote setting are vital.
The chosen individual for this role will have prior experience in the radio, television, print and/or advertising business. You should be highly interested in news/talk radio and TV personalities and brands, and be able to write compelling news stories, features and headlines. Social media and SEO skills are preferred, as well as a self-starter mentality. Given that this position involves talking to people on our team and broadcasters across the country, we're looking for a relationship builder not a hardcore journalist who's only focus is nailing the story.
This is a FT Monday thru Friday position. Please understand that we cover the RADIO and TELEVISION business, not the world of news, politics or sports. If you're not familiar with Barrett News Media, visit BarrettNewsMedia.com or find us on social media to get a better feel for the content before reaching out. Once again, this job is specifically focused on news media coverage, not sports.
Serious replies only please.
