Description

The Evansville, Indiana, Courier & Press is seeking a reporter to explore “culture” in its various meanings – the ways people of different races, ages, socioeconomic backgrounds, and gender identities and preferences live and express themselves creatively in our region. Just as important as recognizing our differences is recognizing our citizens' commonalities.
The C&P is creating the culture and diversity beat as part of a newsroom-wide initiative to write for rather than about diverse communities in the third-largest city in Indiana. The person who fills this position will be a key participant in the initiative.

It’s envisioned that the beat will be a mix of features and news.
The successful candidate will be a storyteller who’s driven by an innate curiosity, self-motivation and love of meeting new people. This reporter will enjoy partnering with other reporters and photojournalists on occasion.

She/he/they will also be comfortable writing with voice as appropriate.
Responsibilities:

  • Identify, write and produce both quick-turnaround and in-depth stories.
  • Write a regular “things to do” column.
  • Cover breaking news 6-9 p.m. Monday-Thursday and on Sundays.
  • Use metrics to analyze reader interest in subjects.

Requirements:

  • Bachelor's degree in communications, journalism or related field preferred or equivalent combination of education and experience.
  • At least a year of journalism experience.
  • Strong writing, spelling and grammar skills; familiarity with AP style.
  • Thorough understanding of journalism ethics.
  • Proficiency using social media to report and promote stories.
  • Ability to multitask and excel under deadline pressure.
  • Ability to shoot and edit photos and video on an iPhone.
  • Data journalism and public records experience a plus.
Application Instructions: 
Interested and qualified journalists, please apply here and include your materials combined into one single document upload, with as much of the following as possible: your resume, a brief cover letter, and a few examples of your work (portfolio/work samples/clips/links, etc.) **The application will only allow one document upload so your materials must be combined into a single document (preferably in PDF format). Completing these steps will ensure that you receive the highest consideration.
