Bustle is looking for a Celebrity News Editor to oversee the site's day-to-day, hour-to-hour,
minute-to-minute news coverage. The Celebrity News Editor will work closely with the Deputy
Entertainment Editor to shape the site's celebrity coverage, & will be responsible for
assigning, editing, & writing articles that appeal to Bustle's audience via search & social
platforms. The role will also involve contributing interviews, original reporting & features to the
team as required, as well as ensuring that Bustle's news coverage is diverse & inclusive.
The ideal candidate should have a passion for all things celebrity, as well as TV, movies, books,
and digital culture, & be creative in spotting angles for the way those things intersect. They
will know what the stars are doing, who they're dating, & what people are saying about them
online. As well as knowing traditional celebrity culture inside out, the ideal candidate will be
tuned in to the ways social media platforms are breeding a new type of celebrity, & have a
comprehensive strategy for how to cover them.
Experience in a fast-paced digital newsroom environment is a must, along with a strong grasp of
traffic insights & data analytics.
Remote for the right candidate, but NYC is preferred.
