Job Information

Dow Jones Reporter, TV News & Sports Media in NEW YORK, New York

Job Description:

The Wall Street Journal is seeking a reporter to cover the business of TV news and sports media, fast-changing industries that feature big personalities and spotlight cultural debates.

The job entails covering cable channels such as CNN, Fox News and MSNBC, as they remake their prime-time lineups and adjust to fresh leadership, as well as the major broadcast news outlets. You will also follow the biggest players in sports media, including ESPN, and track the frothy market for the rights to air live games.

News and sports are the last bastions of the deteriorating cable TV bundle. A major task will be to track how the industry’s big players shift into streaming without hurting their still-profitable, traditional business.

The successful candidate will be deft and creative at sourcing, and will be capable of generating scoops and high-impact enterprise stories.

You will:

  • Lead coverage of cable and broadcast TV news outlets.

  • Cover big players in the sports-media business.

  • Focus on news & scoops, as well as deeply-reported, revelatory features.

You have:

  • Several years of business-reporting experience

  • A demonstrated ability to develop sources throughout an organization and generate scoops.

  • The ability to collaborate with reporters covering adjacent beats.

The position will be based in our New York City office and reports to Media Editor Amol Sharma.

To apply, please submit a resume, clips and a cover letter explaining your approach to the role.
