Reporter Manager - Entertainment (9906624) Syracuse, New York

As Entertainment Manager with Syracuse Media Group, you will lead a team of reporters and photographers/videographers, and oversee quality, depth and immediacy of content and community interaction for all digitally published entertainment stories. You’ll have the opportunity to make an impact as you facilitate direct engagement with local audiences, participation in social media, and the delivery of content across mobile platforms. While a print background is helpful, especially when coordinating between Content and Production, to be a strong fit for this role you will have a background steeped in digital media and search engine optimization (SEO).

We are building a team of top talent in a truly collaborative environment in which you'll share ideas and explore the latest trends. There is no shortage of entertainment news. In fact, Central New York has one of the highest concentrations of college students in the U.S. Covering entertainment generated by Syracuse University alone, not to mention the professional theater, music, and arts organizations and venues, will provide ample opportunity for creative leadership. If you're excited about the future of news delivery, and ready to take ownership of a key role focused on digital media, this could be your perfect fit.

To be a good fit for this opportunity you will have:
  • At least five years of experience in print and digital media
  • A bachelor's degree, or the equivalent experience; a master's degree is preferred
  • A commitment to top-level journalism and the ability to represent the company's strategic vision and goals throughout the organization
  • Excellent journalistic skills and a history of success in digital and social media, including expertise in developing and reporting/producing engaging entertainment and/or news
