Washington DC, USA: White House Reporter - NBC News Digital

Job Vacancy: 
White House Reporter - NBC News Digital

Washington DC, USA

Job Description
We’re seeking a White House reporter to join NBC News’ digital politics team.

You’ll work with an established group of reporters and editors covering the White House. On any given day, you could be covering the news of the moment coming out of the administration, writing the day’s lead White House story, or working on a fast-turn enterprise piece. You will be covering the White House briefing, building sources to break news, and spotting trends.

The ideal candidate will be adept at covering a beat, building sources and seamlessly working under tight deadlines in a competitive news environment to report and file within minutes of a breaking story.

You do not have to have experience covering the White House, but you should have a track record of covering a competitive political beat, like elections, Congress, a statehouse or governor.

You’ll not only want to be first when news breaks. You’ll also be eager to pursue follow-ups and additional angles — including chasing down exclusive information — and be interested in pitching original and enterprise stories. Experience contributing to live coverage of news events, including live blogging, is a plus.

This role will involve collaboration across many teams at NBC News and may require travel.

This position is represented by the News Guild CWA.
