The Palestine Herald-Press , a small but aggressive, up-and-coming daily newspaper in East Texas, has an immediate opening for a reporter who can help us build on the improvements we have made over the last year. Experience a plus but will consider training the right person.
Photography, video, and digital skills a must. This position can be what you make it, though our newest reporter will also be expected to help out with covering city government and Friday night football this fall.
We are raising the bar for small dailies, tackling investigative and special project work that other small dailies just aren't doing.
We value initiative, creativity, enterprise, diversity, a fearless approach to journalism, a commitment to excellence, and a passion to make a difference and get better. Our newest reporter will be expected to come up with many of his or her own story ideas.
This spring, the Herald-Press received its first national award at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. You will work hard but also have fun in a dynamic, congenial, flexible, and relaxed newsroom.
We offer a competitive health care plan.
If interested, please send a resume, cover letter, and work samples to Editor Jeff Gerritt at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please write "Job Applicant" in the subject line.
