TV Blend Reporter

Ideal candidates should be passionate and knowledgeable about television and modern pop culture and possess the ability to convey that passion through their writing. Accuracy is critical but we’re not just hiring someone who can reword a press release. We need a reporter who can explain the latest pop culture news in their own words and through research and experience provide commentary that adds to the story, puts it in context or entertains our readers. Better still if you can do all three in the same sentence.

To be a success you’ll need to be committed, self-motivated, and energetic. The news never stops coming and you’ll be counted on to provide steady coverage.

Responsibilities: We’ll expect at least 50 high quality stories of medium length from you every month in our television section. Do the math and that works out to around 2 - 3 reports filed every single day. We’re not looking for a reviewer, an interviewer, or a columnist, but rather someone who can commit to being there to provide consistent, timely reporting on breaking television show news, the minute it happens, on one of the internet’s most popular entertainment websites.

Formal education in journalism is not required, but prior experience reporting on pop culture is. You should also have and know how to use Photoshop or some other image editing software to resize images. If you know a little very basic HTML formatting, that helps too. Don’t apply unless you’ve done this before and you think you can keep up with our high-pressure pace.

This position does pay a small, per article freelance rate for qualified writers.

To apply send us links to published samples of your work along with a resume to the email address specified above. Applications without relevant samples will be ignored.

Pop Culture Writer

Cinema Blend is hiring a freelance pop culture writer. Ideal candidates are self-motivated, highly enthusiastic wordsmiths with good common sense and a unique perspective on what people care about at any given moment.

Sometimes that involves Miley Cyrus. Sometimes that involves the Bed Intruder Song and sometimes that involves laughing about Black Friday shenanigans. We want someone who embraces pop culture, knows the rumors, the songs and the scandals inside and out but keeps enough of a distance to comment on it with a snarky tongue and a reasoned approach.

If your first impulse after hearing a terrible celebrity baby name is to make a list of other terrible celebrity baby names, we’re looking for you. If your first impulse after a miserable experience at the grocery store is to write 500 words on why people who bag groceries need to be trained not to mix hot and cold food, we’re looking for you. We want your vision. We want your attitude, and we want your passion.

Qualified candidates should have basic photo editing equipment, a willingness to work hard, a hatred of clichés, some writing experience and a broad knowledge of viral videos, music, celebrity gossip and/ or popular culture and most importantly, a pitch as to what types of things they'd like to cover during their first week.

To apply send us links to published samples of your work along with a resume to the email address specified above. Include the job title you're applying for in the title of your e-mail.
