RightThisMinute is looking for a full-time e-journalist.
Our e-Journalists scour the web (and the world) for interesting, compelling videos and the stories behind them. We find viral videos before they go viral, and break news with unseen video. We serve up videos to our viewers on our website and our television show before they will see them anywhere else.
You must be familiar with YouTube and all social media platforms and understand what makes a “good” video. It’s important to be connected to pop culture and what is trending. EJs must be able to track down information on the videos they find, contact video creators/content sources for permissions, licensing and/or interviews. Must be able to work independently and as part of a team. Must be familiar with the RightThisMinute TV show, website, social media and app.
A background in journalism, online content, blogging, video production, and/or television is encouraged. Must be able to work under deadline pressures and live in Phoenix, Arizona.
RightThisMinute is a nationally syndicated weekday television show that was brought to life by a unique partnership between MagicDust Television and Cox Media Group, Gray Media, Inc., and The E.W. Scripps Company. RightThisMinute.com launched in September 2011.
