Opinion Columnist

Opinion columnists work closely with the Opinion Editor to develop angles on newsworthy events, topics and issues that would benefit from editorial commentary.

What You Will Do:

  • Produce at least one column every two weeks
  • Report potential opinion story ideas to the Opinion Editor at least a week in advance; this includes, but is not limited to, conceiving and planning, interviewing sources and capturing and editing content. Stories may be returned for further edits
  • Submit high-quality work; these should be thoughtful pieces backed up by ideas, sources and facts
  • Columnists are highly encouraged to work with our cartoonist on staff to produce corresponding illustrations with their columns

We are looking for team players with a drive to learn and passion for telling stories that often go untold. Mustang Media Group members thrive on innovation while ambitiously seeking to hone their craft and serve their communities.

Whether your goal is to pursue a career in journalism, gain experience in a newsroom or learn more about opinion writing, Mustang Media Group is the best place to get a comprehensive campus experience. Writing and/or multimedia experience is not required.
