In the case of journalists (which is the one we want) its used in the same
way to mean a writer assigned to a specific item. A beat writer might for
example be assigned to "report every Manchester United football game", and
that is all they would do. His/her job is to know everything (and everyone)
around that specific topic.
Can we say this is similar to a column in journalism?
