Huckle Media, LLC, an award-winning news and information company in southern Minnesota, is looking for watchdog reporters. We won’t settle for the ordinary. We need reporters who are equally comfortable crafting compelling tales and analyzing documents.

We have an opening at the Waseca County News.

The Waseca County News is a 2,000 circulation, award-winning weekly just east of Mankato. The position at the WCN would cover the city and county government and Waseca schools.

The successful applicants will have insatiable curiosity, an excellent grasp of open records/meeting law and a demonstrated knowledge of how multimedia enhances reporting. Special consideration will be given to candidates who have experience using social media.

Reporters who thrive on reactive, institutional stories need not apply.

We are a family-owned cluster of 16 publications, nine community websites and Facebook pages and a regional entertainment magazine. All are aggressive, watchdog-oriented papers with newsrooms full of talent. Besides the Twin Cities, Faribault and Waseca are driving distance from the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, Rochester and the Mayo Clinic, Mall of America, eight state parks and more than 100 recreational lakes and other top attractions. Benefits include health care, dental, life and long-term disability insurance, a flexible spending plan, vacation and 401k. Send your resume and no more than five of your best clips to Suzy Rook, Managing Editor, Waseca County News, 213 Second St., Waseca, MN 556093. E-mail it to No phone calls. The County News is an equal opportunity employer.
