With its new $100 million influx of funding from parent Turner Broadcasting, the sports brand is planning to hire as many as 20 platform content creators.

    Bleacher Report's Race To Own The Social Graph (Before ESPN Does) | AdExchanger

    Turner-owned Bleacher Report is going all-in on social platforms because the chance to set roots in social broadcasting before ESPN does, whether or not reliable platform monetization is a mirage, is too tempting to ignore.

    Social Content Producer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bleacher Report (Chicago, IL) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I met two other producers in a downtown Turner office. Prior to the interview I was required to prepare some video pitches that could be produced about the 2016 Florida Gator football team. I sent it in the day before the interview. The interview itself was very casual. I immediately felt relaxed and conversation flowed easily. They asked some sports-related questions and questions related to the job and I was out of there in under an hour.
