The position, available immediately, will cover a wide variety of arts and entertainment in the greater Capital Region and the vibrant summer scene in the Berkshires, including music (popular and classical), visual arts, theater and dance as well as local film and online entertainment. We need someone who can see both forest and trees: cover breaking news on the business of the arts and profile notable personalities, while also connecting the dots on developing media trends.
