Description:

Immediate Opening!

The Highlander in Marble Falls publishes twice a week, but our website has a deadline every minute. We need an energetic news reporter with the drive and love for community journalism to help make sure this newspaper upholds its reputation as a community institution.

Since this position is responsible for covering municipal government, courts, as well as local events, it is particularly important in our small newspaper group that the right candidate will have the ability to cover hard news as well as craft a well-written feature. If you have a passion for elections and politics, you’ll enjoy this job.

Responsibilities range from covering and photographing the most routine community news to schools, law enforcement and government issues and events. Must have ability to use a video camera and shoot your own photos to go with your stories. Having your own camera equipment is a plus, but a Canon DSLR and lenses are available for use.

Candidates must be organized self-starters who understand community journalism, meet deadlines, and understand the necessity of balance, accuracy and clear writing.

Experience a plus, but candidates just out of college will be considered. Knowledge, initiative and ideas for making our websites a primary information source is essential. You'll be working with veteran journalists who have covered state house and Washington politics.

Please email resume and five samples of your work to Phil Schoch, Executive Editor, Highland Lakes Newspapers to phil.schoch@highlandernews.com. Candidates must be willing to travel to our home office in Marble Falls if an interview is warranted.

We have newspapers in Marble Falls, Burnet and Llano. We expect our employees to relocate to the community where they are based.
