Are you a tenacious and versatile seeker of facts who is driven by community journalism? Do you chase the story using public records, social media, frequent contact with sources on your beat, and shoe leather reporting? Do you immerse yourself in your community to tell the stories and explore the topics that most impact readers? If this describes you, the awarding-winning (Bluffton, Ind.) News-Banner has an open reporting position that you may be suited for.
We are a family-owned company that publishes six days a week. The ideal candidate for this position has a proven track record of getting the story — whether it’s breaking news, a feature profile or a meeting coverage piece on deadline; success with AP Style; experience with InDesign; and familiarity with digital storytelling for the Web and social media. Previous newspaper reporting experience preferred. Some evening hours required. Send three clips and your resume to Editor Jessica Bricker at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
