Politics Reporter
CBS News Digital is looking for an ambitious reporter to cover a wide range of stories on the politics beat. Reporters should be ready to jump on breaking news, and will also be given opportunities to develop areas of expertise on timely subjects.

We value: Aggressive reporting. Sharp writing. High journalistic standards. And an ear for stories that will make news and get read. You’ll work with editors to identify important stories. You’ll then report them out by calling sources and doing research to provide background and context to tell a compelling story for a mass audience.

This is a reporting and writing job, and reporters will work closely with network correspondents and broadcast producers from CBS News and CBSN, our 24/7 streaming network, to create smart programming on all platforms.

Your Day-to-Day:

Stories you’ll work on fall into two areas:

1) Covering breaking news, where your job will be to write quickly and accurately, and to look for ways to distinguish our take from the competition.

2) Developing enterprise ideas, with an eye toward making news and having impact.

The right candidate will want to take ownership of a story from beginning to end, including presentation with compelling visuals and be prepared to discuss original reporting on CBSN.

What you bring to the team:
You have -
3 + years experience in a digital newsroom, and deep knowledge of U.S. politics.
Strong writing and editing skills.
