Description:

Delmarva Now is seeking an energetic watchdog reporter who can fuse data with impact.

Deep dives on a variety of topic — government, health, business, environment — put Delmarva Now a step above in a highly competitive TV market. As part of the USA Today Network, our work is routinely featured by other Gannett properties.

Candidates must find ways to relate to a conservative, rural audience across three states. You cannot force feed this audience “peas and carrots” news; understanding multiple sides of an issue will assist you in creating an educational approach.

You should be passionate about making a positive difference in the community, holding public officials accountable and telling stories in innovative ways. You should also inspire your cohorts to find deeper meaning in their reporting.

Experience with public records is required. Database or computer-assisted reporting skills will set applicants apart from others.

Delmarva Now includes The Daily Times and nine weekly publications covering Delaware, Maryland and Virginia coastal and Chesapeake Bay communities.

Salisbury, Maryland, is located 45 minutes from Ocean City, Maryland, and Delaware beaches. The Delmarva Peninsula offers plenty of national and state parks to explore. Day-trippers can visit Washington, D.C., Baltimore and Philadelphia. 

Please send cover letter, resumes and links to your published work to News Director Laura Benedict Sileo lbenedic@delmarvaNow.com.
