City Paper is not for tourists
Newspapers these days are always having trouble monetizing their coverage, and that’s been a big problem at the Washington Post. If you’re an ad rep, after all, how do you peddle, say, investigative coverage of the treatment of soldiers at Walter Reed Army Medical Center? To whom do you pitch even the Chandra Levy series?
Well, good news for those ad reps now. The Post is looking for a weddings reporter. Soaring profits are sure to ensue! Memo after jump.
Style is seeking a reporter to help launch a new feature covering local weddings (a/k/a the Sports page for women). We’ve got some ideas on how this might work, but want to get a reporter involved from the beginning in conceiving this new part of our coverage. We’ve got some ideas on how this might work, but want to get a reporter involved from the beginning in conceiving this new part of our coverage. Of course, we want this feature to have a strong interactive component, so we’ll be asking anyone interested to write a memo outlining her or his ideas for both print and online. Our strong preference is to fill this position with an internal candidate.
Interested? Please see Steve Reiss, Deb Leithauser or Peter Perl by April 13.
