Description:

NEWS REPORTER

The Press of Atlantic City, a multi-platform news operation with a growing audience, seeks an aggressive, digitally-savvy news reporter who understands how to use all the tools in the journalism toolbox.

Here’s why you should work for us:

  • We are the preeminent media outlet in South Jersey, covering four large counties as well as Atlantic City.
  • We are owned by BH Media, Warren Buffett’s company, which means stability, resources and working for a guy who loves newspapers (and also owns Dairy Queen).
  • We are passionate about what we do here and are committed to both serving readers and helping our journalists develop new skills.
  • The Press is located in southern New Jersey: Nightclubs, casinos and beaches are here; major cities (Philly, NYC, Baltimore, DC) are within a few hours’ drive.

Here’s what we ask in return:

You must have strong news judgment, a collaborative approach and a desire to get the story swiftly and accurately.

You must be able to quickly adapt to our fast-paced operation and be capable of producing a variety of content: photos and videos, tweets, short updates for web, and print stories with deep context.

A college degree is required. At least two years’ experience in daily journalism is preferred. Preference given to regional candidates.

The Press is a progressive news operation with a focus on communication and collaboration at all levels. Working with fellow reporters, photographers and senior editors is a typical day on the job. Input and creativity is not just welcome, it’s required. In this ever-changing media landscape, a sense of humor also helps.
