AtlanticLIVE, the live events arm of The Atlantic, seeks a highly motivated, entrepreneurial, and service-minded health reporter/producer to join our team and contribute to the growth, development, and execution of AtlanticLIVE’s events.
The health producer is a creative, enterprising journalist, with intense curiosity, who has a deep interest in medical innovation, as well as how policy and politics affect the way Americans access and use health care. This individual is able to observe trends, connect the dots, and grasp the bigger picture to what is unfolding in the United States health-care system. And this producer knows how to engage audiences, turning complex topics into compelling, and emotionally resonant, stories.
This journalist has at least three years of experience in health care reporting, event or show production, a deep well of contacts in the health-care industry and a strong history of high-profile speaker booking. Just as important, this person has a commitment to exploring all points of view, and a commitment to discovering the unknown person whom the world needs to hear from.
The health producer is a dedicated follower of the news, can understand complex policy issues and has an understanding of current social and popular trends. This person can speak with command to experts and leaders across many different fields and can lead the editorial execution of any event, juggling multiple responsibilities with many players. This person can manage and defuse stressful situations, gracefully and diplomatically.
AtlanticLIVE builds on the 160-year legacy of The Atlantic, offering 3D journalism to audiences hungry for lively discussion of contemporary issues, including politics, business, education, health, and technology. We produce more than 125 events a year across the country and around the world. These include large scale national and international events like The Atlantic Festival along with topical forums on everything from education to criminal justice.
Across Atlantic Media, generally, the firm looks for two “pillar gifts” in you, and everyone else. In all of us, these are more aspirational than actual, but they are central in our intentions:
Atlantic Media is an EOE of Minorities/Women/Vets/Disability.
