INSIDER breaking news reporter

Editorial | New York, NY | Full Time

Job Description

 If you're a diehard news junkie and social media obsessive, you could be the perfect fit INSIDER's breaking news reporter position.

Breaking news reporters are responsible for following world events and reporting on them in real time across multiple social media platforms and on our website. They are also responsible for contributing original reporting on news events.

That means one day, you could be following the California wildfires. The next, you'd be reporting on Mark Zuckerberg’s comments to Facebook executives.

The ideal breaking news reporter:

  • Is an excellent storyteller — good at taking complex current events and presenting them in a compelling and relatable way

  • Interprets news quickly and writes at lightning speed

  • Produces clean, clear copy

  • Knows how to advance a story

This is an entry-level role, ideal for anyone who wants to jump into a fast-paced reporting role at a growing digital media company.

Please note that this position requires that you work in our Manhattan office. INSIDER offers competitive compensation packages complete with benefits. 

INSIDER is great journalism about what passionate people actually want to know. That’s everything from news to food, celebrity to science, politics to sports and all the rest. It’s smart. It’s fearless. It’s fun. We push the boundaries of digital storytelling. Our mission is to inform and inspire.
