Company: Nashville Business Journal
Business Reporter
Job Status:  Full-time
Ad Expires:

Job ID: 1526576


The Nashville Business Journal is seeking an aggressive reporter to chase the deals, follow the development and lead the conversation in Nashville's business community.

This reporter will cover the fast-paced commercial real estate industry. Middle Tennessee's real estate sector is coming on strong as it rebounds from the recession, with explosive growth in apartment development and new high-profile office buildings on the drawing board. Developers are making big plays, investors are circling and corporate tenants are on the move as Nashville becomes one of the hottest markets in the country. The moves in real estate are a key indicator of the health of the city's economy and have tremendous impact on the entire business community.

This reporter must be relentess in chasing news and building relationships with sources. Our ideal candidate has a track record of breaking stories and is fiercely allergic to getting beat. He or she must produce high-impact breaking news and compelling enterprise that is rich with perspective and context for Nashville's business leaders. Business Journal reporters are expected to be the go-to source for news and analysis about their coverage area. They must break important news online and give readers behind-the-scenes analysis in print.

This reporter must be able to 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 savvy.

The award-winning Nashville Business Journal is Music City’s source of news and connections for business leaders and power players. We are a fast-paced digital news operation that is growing in subscribers, readers and event attendees. Rather than cutting back, we are investing in our digital and print products with a host of companywide initiatives. Owned by American City Business Journals, the NBJ is a sister publication to 43 Business Journals nationwide.

Nashville is a fantastic city with tremendous momentum, known for its long-established music and entertainment scenes and recently recognized for its emerging food and arts culture. It’s one of the nation’s most livable cities, with a great cost of living.

If you thrive on a fast-paced environment where you can innovate and lead, we invite you to apply.

Send resume, cover letter and work samples to Editor in Chief Lori Becker at EOE.
