Title: Contributing Reporter
Date Posted: 2017-09-28
Location: Not mentioned
ABP Media (http://abeautifulperspective.com) is looking for a contributing reporter who will work closely with the editorial team to produce freelance news and culture stories on a consistent basis. Interested candidates should expect to complete a minimum of one story a week, and there will frequently be opportunities to report much more than that. ABP will commit to a minimum amount of work each month, and payment will be on a per-story basis.

The contributing reporter will be expected to move quickly to produce features and analysis on the top news and cultural issues of the week, and should be adept at reporting on breaking news and wider trends. The reporter should wake up in the morning brainstorming original approaches to the day's big stories. We want features that put a human face on a news headline, offer context and teach us something new. Dive into an important stat and help us understand why it's meaningful. Here's an example of an ABP news feature: http://bit.ly/2vZhLUN What we DON'T do: Aggregated tweets on insert-Trump-statement-here. Hot takes for the sake of hot takes.

The reporter will also be expected to contribute to ABP's culture coverage -- how music, art, film, sports, fashion, food, etc. reflect and impact issues in our society. This includes interviews with people shaping their industry in a distinctive way, explorations of the origins and history of an emerging cultural trend. What we DON'T do: Celeb gossip. TV recaps. Reviews. The 10 movies to see in your 20s.

ABP is a new editorial website for people seeking the information and understanding to develop their own views and engage with the world around them. ABP also produces The Lowdown, a weekly email newsletter with news analysis, fresh content and insight into the tomorrow's trends and innovations.
