Taylor Swift’s Influence
The timing of the job posting follows a crazy successful year for the “Anti-Hero” singer, who recently released the “Taylor’s Version” of her Speak Now album and the October 2022 release of her tenth studio album, Midnights. The 33-year-old musician also just finished the US leg of her critically acclaimed Eras Tour, which has just gotten started.

Tickets to see the film in AMC Theaters broke records for the company’s advance ticket sales, with $26 million already sold.
The job description for the Swift reporter continues: “Seeing both the facts and the fury, the Taylor Swift reporter will identify why the pop star’s influence only expands, what her fanbase stands for in pop culture, and the effect she has across the music and business worlds.” The energetic journalist they are looking for must be able to capture the excitement around Swift’s ongoing tour and upcoming album release of the new “Taylor’s Version” of 1989 while also providing thoughtful analysis of her music and career. This reporter will “chronicle the biggest moments on the next portions of Taylor Swift’s tour, offering readers of USA TODAY, The Tennessean, and more than 200 local news sources an inside view,” the job description continues. Since the reporter will cover the remaining Eras Tour shows, they must be able to travel internationally for the job. For more details about the job, click here.
