Looks like Gawker Media is looking to enhance its paparazzi footprint. A tipster sent this posting from a local university’s journalism listserv today:
NYC-based Gawker Media is looking for a bright, clever freelance reporter for an assignment in the Palm Desert area. This job will include some real, on-the-ground reporting experience and an opportunity to help break a big story for Hollywood and entertainment industry insiders.
We’re looking for someone who’s fearless, creative, and has a penchant for tough reporting. This is NOT a writing gig, but we need someone who is eager to spend a day tracking people down, analyzing clues, and bunkering down for an old-fashioned stakeout. Candidates with photography and previous reporting experience are preferred.
