Police and courts reporter

The Herald and News, an award-winning 14,500 circulation morning newspaper in Klamath Falls, Ore., is seeking a public safety reporter to cover city and county police and fire departments as well as the local court system. The right person must be able to develop reliable sources to ferret out the stories behind the headlines. Reporters are required to develop in-depth news pieces to give our readers a deeper understanding of what drives our community. Hours are 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mon-Friday, but all reporters are on call and some weekend or night shift work may be required. Reporters often shoot their own photos, video and post news online, to Twitter and Facebook. This is an ideal job for someone to launch their journalism career. Many of our staffers move on to much larger metro-dailies after a few short years here.

If interested, please send a letter, resume and a link to your most recent clips to: Gerry O’Brien, Editor at or mail to Herald and News, P.O. Box 788, Klamath Falls, OR 97601, by Dec. 20
