Music Journalists report on news, albums, concerts and other aspects of the music world. Many journalists are freelance, working with a number of publications simultaneously, while others will be retained on staff by a specific media outlet.
While the nature of the work varies depending on the type of publication a journalist is working with, there is one thing all music journalists spend a great deal of time doing: listening. The rest of a journalist's time is spent researching, reporting, writing, and emailing industry connections like publicists, managers, and editors.
