The Kokomo Tribune, a mid-sized daily newspaper in north central Indiana, is looking for a reporter to join its team.

About an hour and a half north of downtown Indianapolis, Kokomo is a big town with major employers whose successes have made national headlines, but it’s also a small town full of people with big hearts. As a reporter, you’ll get a chance to cover it all. From government happenings to community news to crime to enterprise pieces, there’s no shortage of good stories here.

We strive to provide the best every day, and we expect our reporters to meet that standard and deliver news promptly to our online and mobile readers. The ideal candidate will have a proven track record of juggling multiple projects, as well as be a strong writer and solid reporter. He or she will look beyond the meeting and dig deeper. Also, the ability to cultivate and maintain a beat is a must.

We also publish a glossy magazine, Heartland, so you’ll have a chance to flex your feature-writing muscles as well. We expect our reporters to think Web first, and experience in multimedia would give candidates an edge.

If you think you have what it takes to join our team, send a cover letter telling us why, along with five clips of your best work and a resume, to Jeff Kovaleski, managing editor, 300 N. Union St., Kokomo, IN 46901; or email to
