Reuters seeks editor in New York to oversee energy coverage

by

Reuters News is seeking an exceptional journalist, an inspirational leader and an insightful editor to lead coverage of the most important story of the decade – the North American shale revolution, and its transformative impact on global energy markets.

The broad contours of this story are well established, as surging U.S. production and falling imports promise an economic revival that will fundamentally alter America’s position in the world. But beyond the headlines, the energy trade story has never been in greater flux, from the Keystone pipeline to decades-old export restrictions; the rise of natural gas vehicles to the decline of coal-fired power plants; oil-train arbitrage to Jones Act tankers; Latin America fuel exports to U.S. biofuel policy; the shrinking role of Wall Street to the renewed rise of trading merchants. In an ever-changing landscape with prices and politics constantly shifting, traders and investors are more reliant than ever on smart journalism.

As editor-in-charge of energy market news in the Americas, the successful candidate will be expected to drive coverage on two parallel, interconnected tracks: breaking market-moving real-time news for professional traders ahead of the competition, from refinery glitches to pipeline spills to arbitrage trades; and also producing sophisticated, ahead-of-the-curve enterprise and investigative work that highlights emerging trends, analyzes major developments and tells a global financial audience about things that other people don’t want them to know.

The editor-in-charge will be expected to lead by example, producing outstanding work under their own byline while directing and developing the talents and skills of 10 specialist reporters in New York and another dozen or so across the region, helping them produce sharp, smart market stories for a global audience. Competing at both ends of the spectrum, from deep-specialist split-second spot news to agenda-setting multi-week enterprise, requires clear leadership, smart strategies and savvy news ideas. Above all, it requires a fierce determination to win.

Reuters is looking for a strong reporter and writer to join our New York-based mergers team with an emphasis on breaking news about deals and dealmakers.

One of the highest pressure jobs at Reuters, but also one of the most rewarding, the M&A reporting job is one that demands strong source-building skills and a passion for being first on the news that matters most to our customers.

Based in New York, you will be at the center of it all and get the chance to build relationships with the movers and shakers of the elaborate Wall Street deal machine.

Reuters climate coverage

Reuters climate coverage continues to decline

by

Reuters’ coverage of climate change issues has continued to decline, according to a report from Denise Robbins of Media Matters for America.

Robbins writes, “Former Reporter: “Skeptic” Editor Ingrassia Created A ‘Climate Of Fear’ In The Newsroom. In July 2013, former Reuters Asia climate change correspondent David Fogarty revealed that when Paul Ingrassia —  a self-identified ‘climate change sceptic’ — took over as deputy editor-in-chief, a”climate of fear” surrounding climate change coverage followed….

Since Ingrassia’s Promotion To Managing Editor, Reuters’ Climate Coverage Has Decreased Further. Media Matters analysis released on July 23, 2013, supported Fogarty’s suspicions, finding that Reuters reported on climate change almost twice as much before Ingrassia became deputy editor-in-chief. Since Ingrassia became managing editor in February 2013, Reuters’ climate coverage has only worsened according to an analysis of the six-month period following our initial study. From July 24, 2013, to January 24, 2014, Reuters published 221 articles and 103 mentions about climate change, for a total of 324 stories. This is an 8 percent drop from 353 stories during an equivalent time period under the ‘skeptic’ editor’s regime (which saw 353 total stories), and a more than 50 percent decrease from an equivalent time period before Ingrassia took over (675 total stories).

“Just under half of Reuters’ coverage (44 percent) was focused on policy — a decrease from our previous study (63 percent) — and coverage focused on science increased slightly from 12 percent to 14 percent. The articles quoted primarily politicians and government officials (45 percent of the time) — similar to the previous study (41 percent) — but their usage of scientists increased slightly to 19 percent of the time from 12 percent.

Reuters seeks tech reporter in Tokyo

by

The Tokyo bureau of Reuters is looking for a savvy and dedicated journalist to cover the technology sector in our busy company news team.

From quirky start-ups making clever games for smartphones to stodgy conglomerates with deep pockets and cavernous R&D operations, the tech scene in Japan offers ample potential for a creative and tenacious reporter to develop original story ideas and break news of interest to a broad international audience.

The successful candidate will be able to beat the competition in spotting big-picture industry trends as well as emerging technologies and hot new gadgets in this often offbeat market, writing about them with flair and connecting the dots to economic and social issues of global import.

An ability to develop high-level sources and work smoothly with a hard-working bilingual team of industrial news reporters – as well as colleagues in visual media and in other bureaus around the globe – is also a must, while a strong background in business and finance journalism will be key to developing stories that make tech trends relevant to our investor readership.

Fluency in written and spoken Japanese is also required.The role will also require an all-rounder who can write broad-brush stories about how changes in Japan’s economy are playing out for Japanese industry, who can help with coverage of major breaking stories and jump into ambitious enterprise reporting projects.
