Company: The Pacific Northwest Inlander
News Reporter at successful weekly
Washington St.
Job Status:  Full-time
Ad Expires: 
March 17, 2013
Job ID: 1469159



We’re looking for a tenacious and accurate NEWS REPORTER who loves chasing stories, cracking skulls, breaking news, combing through documents and writing magazine-style narratives. Bonus, if you have experience covering government and politics.

Why work for the Pacific Northwest Inlander? Because we’re better than ever. (With the highest market penetration of any weekly in the country, we can’t seem to print enough papers. … We’re at 50,000+ at the moment.) And because we value the right things: narrative, original ideas, truth-telling and getting out of the office to dig up compelling, important stories. Also, with some 600,000 people between Spokane and Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, the metro area offers many of the advantages of the city (arts, culture, vibrant downtowns), in addition to mountains, rivers, lakes and all the outdoor recreation they afford.

This is a salaried position with benefits. Send a CV, cover letter and your five best work samples to Editor Jacob Fries at Put “news reporter" in the subject line. NO PHONE CALLS.
