SalaryNot Specified

The Colorado County Citizen is looking to add a talented, experienced reporter to our editorial department.  

The ideal candidate has experience covering city and county government meetings, school board, local school sports of all kinds, and breaking news. Forty percent of this position is high school sports coverage so we're looking for someone who is very strong in this area. A firm grasp of AP style is mandatory. Developing relationships and being part of the community is a must. Given the nature of the business, this position does require frequent evening or weekend hours.

Responsibilities will include writing, taking photos for the paper, posting content online and on all platforms of social media. Being able to create and produce both live and edited mobile videos is a big plus. Our goal is to create a strong digital culture while still sticking to our core product – the print edition. The print edition remains our top priority and we focus on local news, human interest stories, and engaging our readers.

The Citizen offers benefits including paid vacation after one year, and, after 60 days, holiday and personal leave, life, health, dental and vision insurance. 

We are a weekly paper that publishes a Wednesday edition. We’ve served Colorado County since 1857.
