This reporter is one of three suburban reporters covering daily news, trends and enterprise in fast-growing Sarpy County, just south of Omaha.

At least two to three years at a daily paper are preferred, although recent graduates with strong clips and internships will be considered. This person reports to the metro/suburban government editor.

To apply: Send cover letter, resume, and clips to Managing Editor Melissa Matczak at Please put "suburban reporter" in the subject line. Deadline to apply is March 15.
