Company: LA School Report
Seeking Quality News Editor and Reporter
Los Angeles, California
Job Status:  Not Specified
Salary:  Not Specified


LA School Report, a news organization devoted to covering the politics and policy of public education in Los Angeles, is seeking reporters and editors.  Candidates must have three years of daily newsroom experience, a commitment to quality journalism, and a serious nose for news.

This is not an aggregation or blog site; now in our third year, LA School Report is dedicated to high quality journalism through fully-reported, original pieces. We have established a distinguished track record by breaking news, earning press awards and becoming the go-to site for the latest developments on high-stakes education issues.  We are looking for candidates who can demonstrate strong reporting, writing and editing skills, with an understanding of what makes a good story and an ability to turn complicated issues into compelling copy. Fast and accurate writing is a must.

The ideal candidate is a news junkie with a passion for local politics and a gift for coming up with fresh story ideas daily.  Familiarity with digital tools and social media are a must. Candidates must live in the Los Angeles area and have their own transportation.  We are seeking both full-time and free-lance reporters and news editors, and are ready to pay well for the right candidates. 

Please send an email to: jamie(at)

Include a resume, and no more than three writing samples.
