Gambling Reporter, The Wall Street Journal - CA
The Wall Street Journal is looking for a reporter to cover gambling, casinos and hotels, a dynamic area expected to change rapidly with legalized sports betting.
Casino operators and other companies are rushing to get a foothold in the burgeoning American sports-betting market.
The stakes are high for businesses from casinos to broadcasters to fantasy sports companies, as well as for communities around the country deciding how much betting to permit in their borders. We're looking for a reporter who can reveal maneuverings to gain position and size up winners and losers as the business emerges.
The beat also includes other major themes, such as the fate of global casino operators in Asia, hotels' competition with home-sharing services like Airbnb and the influence of gambling-industry magnates on the political scene.
As demonstrated by the Journal's work on Steve Wynn—the first high-profile public-company CEO brought down by #metoo allegations—the beat is rich with opportunities to pursue in-depth investigations, break news and write enterprise features.
The successful candidate will be a strong sourcer and capable writer comfortable working with colleagues around the Journal. The job is based in the Journal's Los Angeles bureau, a close-knit group in a city with a vibrant cultural scene and a climate that's hard to beat.
