Company: Nashville Business Journal
Seeking breaking news junkie
Job Status:  Full-time
Ad Expires: 
August 29, 2013
Job ID: 1453835


Want to break news? Want to lead the conversation in Nashville's business scene? Want to network with the region's top power players?

The Nashville Business Journal is seeking an aggressive reporter to follow those who hold the purse strings in Music City, from Nashville's city hall to Capitol Hill.

This reporter will cover the intersection of business and government, following Metro Nashville city hall and the state Legislature with an eye toward policies and politics that impact the region's businesses. The post also covers all aspects of how money flows in and out of companies in Nashville, from state coffers to local lenders. Lending (from banks to public financing) is critical for businesses and will play an even larger role as the economic recovery continues.

This reporter must produce compelling, high-impact breaking news and enterprise that is rich with perspective and context for Nashville's business community. Business Journal reporters are expected to be the go-to source for news and analysis about their coverage area. They must break important news online and give readers behind the scenes analysis in print.

This reporter must be able to marry strong traditional journalism skills — source building, sharp interviewing techniques, strong analytical and investigative reporting skills, clear writing, document use — with online and social media savvy.

The award-winning Nashville Business Journal is Music City’s source of news and connections for business leaders and decision makers. We are a fast-paced digital news operation that is growing in subscribers, readers and event attendees. Owned by American City Business Journals, the NBJ is a sister publication to 43 Business Journals nationwide.

Nashville is a fantastic city with tremendous momentum, known for its long-established music and entertainment scenes and recently recognized for its emerging food and arts culture. It’s one of the nation’s most livable cities, with a great cost of living.

If you thrive on a fast-paced environment where you can innovate and lead, we invite you to apply.

Send resume, cover letter and work samples to Editor in Chief Lori Becker at EOE.
