TODAY Digital, the multi-platform arm of the TODAY Show, is seeking a Reporter/Editor to work a Monday-Friday schedule.

Job Duties:
  • Have an appreciation for TODAY’s broad range of topics and personalities: you’ll be asked to cover a number of issues, from hard news to lifestyle. Applicants must display the ability to tell any story – regardless of content type – on any platform (desktop, social, app, newsletter, OTT, etc.) and under a time crunch. You’ll be asked to both write your own stories and edit the work of others.
  • Pop culture interest and expertise is also desired. Are you the person who sees celeb news before anyone else and follows more stars on Instagram than your own friends? Turn your passion for pop culture into creative celebrity-focused stories that intersect with our other lifestyle verticals, from home to parenting to food and more. Candidates must have a gut instinct for a good story, quick decisiveness on angles and assignments, and a fun, clear, TODAY-friendly voice. You must be able to break down trending stories into digestible bites and identify strong quotes from live interviews.
  • Be organized and independent. Candidates must display superior organizational skills. The candidate will work with writers and editors on different teams – all working on different tasks and moving at different speeds. If you run towards problems and disarm them with little to no issues, then this is the job for you.
  • Be obsessed with social and storytelling. Applicants must have a strong grasp of all social platforms, as well as the know-how to create heartwarming/life-altering content for individual platforms. If you tend to go down a rabbit hole with analytics, delving into how stories are shared and consumed across digital, social and mobile platforms, then this is the job for you.


  • Qualifications:
    • Must have 3+ years of newsroom experience
    • Working knowledge of social, video production and online publishing tools
    • Bachelor’s degree in Communication, English, Journalism, History or a related field of study

    Additional Job Requirements:
    • Interested candidate must submit a resume/CV through www.nbcunicareers.com to be considered (note job #: )
    • Must be willing to work in New York, NY
    • Occasional coverage on holidays and for special events may be required.
    • Must be able to provide a reel/portfolio of work examples -- if available, include a web address when you submit your resume
