The successful candidate will report, edit and direct coverage of the telecommunications (phone, wireless, cable and Internet) and media (broadcasting, radio, etc.) sectors for our subscription website, which is tailored toward readers involved in these sectors. Among the hot topics we cover are competition in the wireless sector, how the TV Industry is adjusting to things like Netflix and coming CRTC regulations giving customers more choice over the channels they get, and cutting-edge technology such as the Internet of Things and wearables.
The Editor of The Wire Report will lead a staff of two other journalists, assign stories and write them first-hand. This will include an assortment of breaking news and features, long and short.
The Wire Report is based in downtown Ottawa, a short walk from Parliament Hill. We are a division of Hill Times Publishing, which also operates The Hill Times, Embassy, The Lobby Monitor and Parliament Now.
The ideal candidate will have a university degree or college diploma in journalism, and experience in providing news coverage of business, government, courts and/or regulatory bodies, and have spent some time editing and managing other journalists. The successful candidate would, over time, be expected build up a network of sources in business, government and among relevant organizations who can provide tips and insight to help us stay a step ahead of the competition in coverage of telecom and media matters.
