Bloomberg Industry Group seeks a Congress tracker reporter

February 20, 2023

Posted by Mariam Ahmed

Bloomberg Government is looking for a tenacious reporter to lead its Congress Tracker newsletter. You’ll be part of our Congress team, stalking the halls of the Capitol to break news and keep our readers on top of what’s going on in the House and Senate chambers, committees and behind closed doors. You’ll take the lead on a trusted newsletter brand to explain why what’s going on matters to our audience and break through the jargon to make the legislative branch relevant to readers who make and influence policy. You’ll also write enterprise stories, collaborate with our legislative analysts, podcasts, broadcast, visuals and data colleagues and will be encouraged to bring your creativity to how we tell stories.

What you will do:

  • Produce stories with compelling leads, nut graphs, solid framing, and diverse sourcing that can be published with minimal editing
  • Break exclusives, while cultivating sources, developing story ideas, and conducting probing interviews.
  • Leverage in depth knowledge of federal and state legislative, regulatory, and judicial processes.
  • Collaborate with colleagues on topic, multimedia and graphics teams as well as work independently.
  • Serve as a subject-matter expert and resource for more junior reporters throughout the newsroom.

You need to have:

  • Bachelor’s degree with coursework in English or journalism preferred.
  • 7 years’ experience in journalism, including at least one year reporting on legal subject matter.
