Punchbowl News is a news content company led by Anna Palmer, Jake Sherman, John Bresnahan and Rachel Schindler focused on power, people and politics in Washington. We are looking for a producer to join our Washington-based news team.
Punchbowl News’ primary focus is breaking news about power, the nation’s political leadership and explaining to our audience of political junkies how Washington works. We produce (at least) three newsletters each day, a daily podcast, a weekly web show and more coming soon. Punchbowl News’ theory is that power in Washington emanates from the Capitol — and that’s the center of our focus.
Our audience includes members of Congress, high-ranking members of the Biden administration, lobbyists, top-level reporters, media executives, Wall Streeters, tech and Hollywood executives and everyday political fans.
We are looking for a full-time producer to help us on Punchbowl News AM, Midday and PM — our three daily newsletters. The job editing includes helping us put together and lay out the newsletter three times each day — around 5:30 a.m., 1 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. The job will also include work on our other products: Special editions, podcasts, videos and live events.
Familiarity with Congress and national politics is a must. Impeccable work ethic is crucial. The ideal candidate is able to write quickly and copy edit.
The job is based in Washington, D.C. but we are open to candidates from anywhere and everywhere. Punchbowl News is committed to building a diverse staff.
