Description:

If you're an experienced journalist looking for a company that encourages you to run your own show and make your own editorial decisions, keep reading.

Advocate Media produces four award-winning glossy magazines, along with companion web and social media sites, read by more than 500,000 Dallas residents each month. We need a civic-minded, intuitive reporter/editor capable of following through on her/his own ideas with a candid, honest writing voice. 

This is a pioneering opportunity for a skilled reporter/editor to design your own job, with support from our senior editorial team. You must be ambitious and capable of shifting gears at a moment's notice on daily breaking news, but you must also be able to dream up and produce your own lengthy researched pieces. You also should be flexible enough to produce videos and podcasts when they are needed to help tell the story.

If you're enthuastic about telling stories, and if you're a visionary who has the ability to make things happen, this job is for you. Ideally, you've been a reporter for a couple of years but know you can be better if you're given a chance to do things the right way without being micro-managed.

You will get that chance with us.

Ideally, you already live in and love Dallas, you want to make a difference, and you're eager to work in an easy-going, let's-do-this environment.
