Experienced Reporter

Savannah Morning News/ is looking for an experienced reporter to take on one of the most important beats in our coverage area.

Your primary responsibility will be covering the Savannah-Chatham public school system and board of education. The school system is home to both high- and low-performing schools and an often fractious relationship between school board and administration. Plus, we’ve got school board elections this year.

We need you to tell the story of both the good and the bad, how we got there, and where we are going. You need to be able to break news not only to our readers, but also to the elected officials and administrators.

Successful candidates must have: a minimum of five years experience as a reporter (preference given to those with experience covering education); superb communication skills; the ability to juggle daily stories and short- and long-term enterprise reporting; phenomenal planning and multi-tasking skills; a strong attention to detail; excellence with writing for online and social media in the moment and then turning that into excellent copy for print.

To apply, send your resume, cover letter, references and links to at least five substantial stories you’ve covered to Josh Rayburn, multimedia content editor, at

No phone calls, please.
