The Daily Beast

Breaking News Reporter
The Daily Beast delivers award-winning original reporting and sharp opinion from big personalities in the arenas of politics, pop culture, technology, and more. Fiercely independent, irreverent, and intelligent, The Daily Beast now reaches more than a million readers per day. The Breaking News Reporter will report and write quick, high-impact news items on criminal justice, national news, politics, pop culture, and more. The Reporter will be an integral part of The Daily Beast’s breaking news team and national desk. The ideal candidate will have an ability to produce stories that stay a half-step ahead of the competition. In addition, they must have demonstrated skills to weave interviews, anecdotes, and exclusive details into compelling narratives.

The Reporter must have a high news metabolism and be ready to cover high-profile crimes in real time, political clashes as they unfold, and celebrity scandals at the speed of social media. To do that, the Reporter will be asked to find sources, sift through public records, break news, and write with flair.
