Company: Star News Group
Entry Level Reporter Position Available
New Jersey
Job Status:  Full-time
Ad Expires: 
November 1, 2013
Job ID: 1418046


Star News Group is the publisher of The Coast Star, Manasquan, NJ and The Ocean Star, Point Pleasant Beach, NJ.
The Coast Star enjoys an excellent reputation as the premier news source in southern Monmouth County and has approximately 37,500 readers every week. Our reporters take their jobs very seriously, and have been honored by the New Jersey Press Association [NJPA] with more than five dozen awards. The Coast Star has been publishing since 1877. The Ocean Star was launched in 1998, and boasts a readership of approximately 12,500 every week. It has also become a well-respected newspaper in the northern Ocean County area with more than two dozen NJPA awards.

The position we have open is for a full-time beat reporter at either our Manasquan or Point Pleasant Beach office. The job entails covering all aspects of local news in the two as yet-to-be-determined towns the successful candidate would be assigned. This includes police, school and municipal news. It is not unlikely that one day a reporter may be covering a school play in the morning, and attending a criminal trial in the afternoon. We cover all aspects of the news in our communities, and shy away from nothing. The job also requires reporters to attend night municipal meetings, including council, board of education and planning board meetings. These are usually held on Monday, Tuesday and/or Wednesday evenings. On a rare occasion, there is a meeting on a Thursday evening, and there are never meetings on a Friday evening. Reporters are also required to cover one eight hour shift on a Saturday or Sunday, once every eight weeks. For additional details, go to and click on "Employment."
