Community Reporter

City: Pittsburg, KS
Newspaper: Morning Sun
Salary: low- to mid-20Ks
Job Description: The Morning Sun is searching for a community news reporter with digital savvy and a desire to get involved in his/her beat. The Morning Sun is a 6-day daily in the heart of a great college town in Pittsburg, KS. The reporter must be comfortable with a range of story materials, from feel-good features to the gritty sides of politics, courts and business. The reporter must have a digital-first mentality, engaging readers with timely reporting and social media. Developing relationships within the community will be crucial. They should be able to recognize you before long — it’s not a desk job. While you will work with our editor, you will be independent in your pursuit of story ideas and sources. Experience with digital cameras, video, and social media platforms is a must.
Contact: To apply, submit a cover letter, résumé and three writing samples — as well as any photo samples — to Andrew Nash at anash@morningsun.net
