I recommend keeping the writing "job" you have now as not only a showcase of your work, but also as a way to continue gaining experience. If eventually you come across a paying job in the same topical and geographical area, it would obviously be best to make a switch, but for now it would probably be best just to keep what you have. The subject broadening advice is definitely some good advice, as well.
Exposure doesn't pay the bills.

If he doesn't have any credibility, how will he land a job capable of paying the bills. I didn't mention this, but it would be a pretty obvious step to stop taking the unpaid job so seriously, and instead to work on finding better stories instead of just going more in-depth, but to completely stop the gig if there is time to contribute? Why? Just put in a little more time if you want to be paid, that's all. No need to cut corners. If there's no time, and the unpaid job is getting in the way, than by all means, cut! But a monthly article doesn't seem like tooooo much work, in my opinion.
If anyone at the magazine gets paid, then the OP should get paid for a cover story. If you think your work has value to get paid for it, then why give it away? It seems silly.
