TODAY Digital, the multi-platform arm of the TODAY Show, is seeking a freelance writer/editor to work a Tuesday-Saturday Schedule.
Have an appreciation for TODAY’s broad ranges of topics and personalities: you’ll be asked to cover a number of issues, from hard news to lifestyle. Applicants must display the ability to tell any story – regardless of content type – on any platform (site, social, app, etc.) and under a time crunch. Calm and creative individuals only apply.
You’ll be asked to cover a range of topics ranging from pop culture to our lifestyle verticals, so candidates must be able to write, edit and identify strong stories in a variety of beats.
Candidates must have a gut instinct for a good story, quick decisiveness on angles and assignments, and a fun, clear, TODAY-friendly voice. You must be able to break down trending stories into digestible bites and identify strong quotes from live interviews.
Be organized and independent: candidates will work a Tuesday-Saturday schedule – meaning one day of work will occur without the safety net of managers and fellow news editors. As a result, candidates must display superior organizational skills.
