The Galveston County Daily News seeks a sharp, assertive, motivated reporter.

The paper’s award-winning staff covers a growing county of 300,000 people on the Texas Gulf Coast less than an hour’s drive from Houston and based in one of the state’s most popular beach towns.

Preferred candidates will have some experience reporting for a daily or weekly newspaper, but recent graduates with good clips will be considered.

The job entails covering a variety of subjects and occasionally will require weekend and holiday work.

The editors care about both the quality of the newspaper and the quality of the work experience. When our reporters move on, they tend to move up, rather than out of journalism.

We prize thorough, balanced reporting written with style and vigor. 

If you’re solid in the basics, excited about journalism, ready to work hard and eager to learn, this might be the job for you.

The Daily News offers solid pay and benefits including paid vacation, sick leave, health insurance and a 401k with a generous compnay match.  

Send a resume and no more than five well-chosen clips to Editor Michael A. Smith — Please put the words “Application for reporter job” in the subject line.
