Entertainment Writer/Editor

Do you have:

●     Experience writing well-trafficked stories about film and television, tapping into obsessions like Star Wars, Deadpool, the Marvel Universe, Oscar winners, Game of Thrones, “peak TV” and everything Netflix—and also a knack for discovering the “next big thing”?

●     Contacts in the major publicity firms, and established relationships, with celebrities and screeners at your fingertips?

●     A fearless interviewing style that has resulted in quotes that have gone worldwide?

●     An addiction to the traffic a good story can get, and the courage to meet unique visitor and pageview goals?

If so, we want you. We’re a New York media company with an emphasis on news and lifestyle. In a media landscape where companies are scaling back their entertainment coverage, we’re doubling down, and seek a self-starter to run our Film and TV coverage.

YOU WILL BE EXPECTED TO:

●      Secure big-name celebrity interviews and creative never-before-seen content out of your exchange

●      Increase unique visitors and user engagement month-to-month, meeting ambitious traffic and audience engagement goals.

●      Use Google Analytics, Google Trends, and other online tools to guide your coverage, and improve it.

●      Post your stories on social media.

●      Have provocative opinions about pop culture that strike a chord.

●      Never miss the latest obsession—and knowing what readers will want to read about it.

REQUIREMENTS:

●     Proof you’ve done this before, successfully for another established brand.

●     A minimum three years' experience in this space.

●     An unparalleled personal and professional obsession with TV and film. We’re looking for someone who lives it!

— Applicants should submit a résumé, three writing samples, three web story pitches and proof they have done this before.
