Job ID: 1463579


The Cincinnati Business Courier is seeking a reporter to cover startups, entrepreneurs and technology. The reporter must 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 know-how. Whatever the platform, the reporter will produce content – original and curated – that is accompanied by perspective and context.

The top mission: to own audience, by every measure. A Business Courier reporter is expected to contribute both short-form (daily online posts) and long-form (print) stories to our news products. Scoops matter. A lot. Specifically, a reporter will be expected to own their beat audience and conversation; use networking events, Twitter, LinkedIn and other community-building outlets to expand and fortify their source pool and audience; work collaboratively with other newsroom staffers to maximize impact and accessibility of stories reported; and meet or exceed goals related to audience engagement.


Required skills:

Proven ability in reporting and writing

Ability to work independently and remotely

Ability to break news and to identify newsworthy events and sources

Strong analytical and investigative interviewing skills

Ability to relate comfortably to a wide range of people, in person and online, and to develop sources and audience

Competitive, collaborative, curious

Solid understanding of news writing, journalistic ethics and story structure

Education: Bachelors degree or equivalent experience
