Job Description

Insider is hiring a paid editorial fellow to join our media desk and write about the business of sports media. 

The world of sports media is changing rapidly. This fellow will cover topics like how NIL has impacted college sports and athlete careers, the rise of US sports betting, athletes as content creators and entrepreneurs, the shifting landscape of sports TV (and sports rights) as streaming and gambling enter the equation, and more. Companies of interest range from ESPN to DraftKings to The Athletic. 

The ideal candidate should have the following:

  • An interest in the business of sports media and how it is changing, and in the intersection of media and tech
  • Knowledge of the major platforms and companies in the sports media ecosystem
  • A desire to understand how athletes are building their own businesses and the startups and companies helping them do it
  • A nose for identifying any developments that seem unusual and out-of-the-ordinary
  • Close attention to detail and accuracy, and clean copy

All our editorial fellows should have:

  • A passion for digital storytelling, voracious reading habits, and familiarity with digital and social media
  • Experience reporting and writing (school publications are great!)
  • Ability to work quickly and collaboratively with a fast-paced team
  • Solid proofreading/copy editing skills and light HTML/Photoshop experience

The Insider Fellowship Program is for early career journalists who want to spend six months learning from a newsroom full of passionate, dedicated journalists. Fellows are assigned to teams and become experts in digital storytelling. They produce real work that is distributed to our audience of millions, and by the end of six months, they are prepared for the next phase of their journalism careers. For more information on the Insider Fellowship Program, see here:

  • Rate of Pay $20.00 (overtime when needed and approved)
  • PTO and paid holidays
  • Eligible for medical, dental, and vision benefits on their 91st day of employment
