USA Today to hire dedicated ‘Beyoncé reporter’

Page Six hears that Gannett, the publisher of USA Today, is hiring a dedicated Beyoncé reporter.

We’re told the company — which on Tuesday posted an ad for a Taylor Swift reporter — plans to post a listing on Wednesday for a writer who will “chronicle the music, fashion, cultural and economic influence of Beyoncé.”

According to the listing, seen by Page Six, “this reporter will identify why the star’s influence continues to expand and the effect it is having on the music and business worlds. The successful candidate also will tap into stories about the Beyhive, her protective fanbase that propels the image and relevance of the artist.”

It adds, “She has been a force in everything from how the country views race to how women think about their partners. We are looking for an energetic and enterprising writer, capable of a text and video-forward approach, who can capture Beyoncé Knowles-Carter’s effect not only on the many industries in which she operates, but also on society.” 

The job will involve “chronicling the music, fashion, cultural and economic influence of Beyoncé.”

We’re told the writer will work principally for the Tennessean newspaper and USA Today, but their work will reach the whole network of Gannett titles. It’s a remote position.

The company is looking for a candidate with “at least five years of journalism experience working in a digital-first newsroom, a “clear and concise writing style,” a “thorough understanding of metrics and how to use data to understand audience behavior and to inform coverage decisions,” and a “firm command of AP Style,” among other things.

It doesn’t list a salary range.
