Daily Telegraph’s new media expansion

Another indicator of how some mainstream media see podcasting as a big opportunity – The Daily Telegraph is advertising for two Podcast Reporters/Producers:

[…] We are looking for two individuals who are capable of creating high quality and engaging Podcasts that feature comment and opinion from both internal and external sources. The successful candidates will be expected to write, voice, edit and upload audio content. A proven track record in journalism is essential. Full training will be provided on the technical aspects of the role.

The Telegraph launched its daily podcasts last November, and hired a podcast editor in December – apparently the first role of its kind in the mainstream media in the UK.

Interesting things going on with other new media at the Telegraph – they now have ten journalists with individual blogs and a group blog.
