About You

We are seeking an enthusiastic video journalist to cover and produce feel-good and potentially viral news in the New York and Tri-State area. Candidates should live for the kind of news that makes them smile, have a keen sense of storytelling, and a love for all things social media. Our ideal candidate is passionate and knows how to distinguish truth from rumor and pre-viral from merely interesting. We are looking for enthusiastic journalists with clear writing and a strong understanding of how best to use still pictures, video, and graphics to tell a story. Our team needs a visionary who knows how to transport us — not only to another place, but inside another person’s life. All candidates must include a link to their portfolio/reel in their application.
