Managing editor wanted for Gawker

This isn’t where we normally flag up job listings (for full job listings visit this part of the site) but this is an interesting one – since it was posted on September 2, the advert has received 6,722 views, and 150 comments. Manhattan media news and gossip site, Gawker.com, is inviting applications for the post of managing editor.

The incumbent, Nick Denton, says that he needs to get back to his ‘other job’, so is calling for a permanent replacement to join the team.

While admitting he’s never watched an episode of the Hills, he does say it’s mandatory to be ‘plugged into both society gossip and mass culture’. Follow the link here for full details.

FollowTheMedia site faces closure

News and commentary website FollowTheMedia could be shut down unless €35,000 (£27,444) is raised by May 16.

FTM, which focuses primarily on US and European media news and analysis, did not give any reasons for the potential closure in an announcement on its site.

The site is urging readers to make donations or register for membership – annual membership costs €99. Alternatively sponsorship packages are available for €1,000 a year.
