Bleacher Report is hiring writers
Bleacher Report is expanding its Lead Writer program. If you’re a good writer who’s fast, smart, knows a sport well and is comfortable on multiple platforms, this could be the gig for you.
This is from the press release:
As part of the program’s expansion, Bleacher Report plans to hire Lead Writers with backgrounds covering specific sports including National Football League (NFL), college football, Major League Baseball (MLB), Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), National Basketball Association (NBA), National Hockey League (NHL), college basketball and soccer. In addition to their writing responsibilities, Lead Writers will also leverage innovative platforms including video and social media in delivering news around teams and topics that Bleacher Report’s readers are passionate about.
You’ll remember that in the first round of Lead Writer hiring, we brought on Matt Miller, Bethlehem Shoals, Josh Zerkle, Dan Levy and Dan Rubenstein. We’ve since added Will Tidey on soccer and Jonathan Snowden on MMA. Adam Kramer, founder of the wildly popular Kegs N’ Eggs college football blog, will be joining B/R on Feb. 15.
Bleacher Report is looking for writers with experience covering their topic for Bleacher Report or another major sports outlet for at least one year. Significant applicable experience at the college level works as well.
The new Lead Writers will be called on to do on-air work for B/R’s in-house video unit and as an ambassador for the site to the outside sports world. Expertise in video and sports talk radio “expert” analysis is a plus, as is a working knowledge of Photoshop.
