Thomson Reuters

U.S. Media and Telecoms Editor-in-Charge
Reuters is seeking an experienced journalist to drive its coverage of the world’s biggest media and telecoms companies as the industry scrambles to respond to the challenge from Netflix Inc, Inc and other tech companies. From AT&T Inc’s acquisition of Time Warner Inc to Walt Disney Co and Comcast Corp’s pursuit of Twenty-First Century Fox Inc, major conglomerates are making multi-billion dollar bets to try to control how people consume news and entertainment.  

Reuters is looking for a competitive and enterprising editor who can lead from the front, a player-coach who will help reporters source up and break news on how these mega deals are reshaping the industry, which companies emerge victorious and which ones are left behind, and what risks – regulatory, strategic or operational – investors should understand. Experience covering the media industry is preferred as the successful candidate must have a deep understanding of the key players and how they operate, superb networking skills to build sources inside companies, and strong news judgment to guide reporters to produce distinctive stories in this competitive area.
