The Eat Beat Reporter
The South Florida Sun Sentinel is looking for a writer to be the voice of our coverage of South Florida’s eclectic and rapidly changing food and dining scene.
This writer should be knowledgeable and passionate about food, eager to engage with audience and a confident personality.
We want an analyst who can combine aggressive reporting with audience engagement, a commanding voice who can lead readers to restaurants with excellent food, and a guide for concerns of existing and emerging audiences, such as COVID safety, sustainability, and dining options that are rapidly moving from alternative to mainstream. In diverse South Florida, celebrating food as an expression of culture will be a focus.
We are looking for a trendspotter with a critical eye. A consumer advocate looking out for the diner’s pocketbook. A cheerful ringmaster for our rollicking Let’s Eat, South Florida Facebook group. A bridge-builder to South Florida’s diverse communities. And someone who knows their way around the kitchen as more of us are cooking at home.
At least five years experience
Excellent reporting and writing
A digital-first mentality and social media fluency
A passion for and deep knowledge of the topic
A versatile and collaborative team player
