The South Bend Tribune in northern Indiana, part of the USA Today network, is looking for an enterprising and digitally focused reporter who is ready to tackle a wide range of local news stories and help us grow our readership.
You will be responsible for covering investigative/watchdog stories, breaking news and in-depth features. We want someone with the ability to dig out stories and then aggressively chase them. You will be expected to constantly seek out topics and issues that resonate with our local audience. A major focus of the job will be covering the city of South Bend, including government actions, politics, neighborhoods and profiles. But the reporting could also extend to other areas, including business, housing and the University of Notre Dame, among others.
The ability to work closely with a team, as well as a strong social media presence, are musts. This is a chance to make your mark in local news coverage, build a strong portfolio and collaborate with Gannett's other Indiana news organizations, including the Indy Star.
Please put together a single document file that includes the following, in this order:
- Your resume - one to two pages.
- A cover letter that outlines how you would approach the job.
- Links to 6 to 8 online samples of your work or online portfolio
It is important that these items be assembled into a single document and uploaded in PDF format.
