The Wrap seeks digital business editor
TheWrap is looking for an experienced business reporter/editor for a newly-created position covering the business of media with a focus on the digital space.
This is a senior position for someone prepared to represent not just their own byline but a leading digital media brand where breaking news, smart insight and exclusive coverage are expected by our influential readership. Digital is something all reporters cover at The Wrap, so this position allows the candidate to work closely across the newsroom, seeding stories and ideas as it impacts the changing landscape of movies, television and streaming.
But the primary responsibility will be on covering the digital landscape with a focus on media, and on digging deeply into the business models that are constantly being challenged and shifting as a result of technological change.
This person will also have responsibilities in programming and moderating at The Wrap’s prestigious business conferences, The Grill. In that capacity you will work closely with site founder and editor-in-chief Sharon Waxman, and be expected to bring sources and ideas to our growing live events division.
A successful candidate for this position should have a minimum of five years of business reporting experience and be prepared for the demands of breaking news reporting in the digital age.
The successful candidate can potentially be located anywhere relevant – preferably Los Angeles, San Francisco or New York. In that vein, being in the newsroom is not required for a self-starting, highly effective candidate, though some newsroom participation will of course be part of the job.
Salary: TBD based on experience
