Details for Now Hiring Multimedia Journalist
Multimedia Journalist The ideal candidate will be naturally curious, able to write strong copy on a tight deadline and just as comfortable covering a city council meeting as a high school football game. As a community newspaper and digital media company, our team members must be able to learn quickly and be ready to tackle any topic, from breaking news to human interest features to in-depth enterprise projects. The managing editor works directly with reporters to develop the skills and stories needed to succeed while providing autonomy to pursue larger projects and pursuits. The more skills in your journalist quiver besides strong writing -- including photography, video, social media, audio -- the more opportunities you will have with us. We recently launched a podcast, we are introducing new video components and recently created our own hyperlocal social media platform. Top candidates will be interested and able to contribute to these projects as we continue pushing a digital-first mentality within our organization. Our staff is a mix of experienced and enthusiastic young reporters excited about good journalism and serving the community through meaningful work. Nuts and bolts: A degree in journalism or a related field is preferred; recent college grads with student media or internship experience will be considered. Strong knowledge of AP style, grammar and overall clean, consistent, accurate writing is needed. Nights and weekend work as needed. Along with competitive compensation and a tight-knit working environment, we offer medical, dental, vision, and a 401(k) retirement plan. We are an equal opportunity employer.
