Description:

The Times of Northwest Indiana is the main source of news, information and advertising in the region.  Come be a part of our team!

If you’re a hound for transparency and accountability in government and have at least three years of experience reporting for newspapers or related online media companies, we want you to apply for our Porter County government reporter’s position.

Located on the south shores of Lake Michigan in Northwest Indiana, Porter County is home to the largest and fast-growing portions of our readership.

You’ll need to be on your toes in this beat, covering the best and most relevant stories in three key cities and towns and Porter County government boards and commissions. While Porter County lacks the high crime rate of neighboring Lake County – also within our readership area – we need someone with a watchful eye to carve out the most relevant news and hold public officials accountable.

At the time of this job posting, a mayor of one of Porter County’s biggest municipalities is under federal indictment and facing trial on felony bribery charges. Major snafus in the 2018 election process meant results for local and state candidates from the county weren’t known for nearly a week after Election Day, and brutal partisan infighting has plagued the process. These are just a sample of the major local issues you should be ready to tackle through thorough and hard-hitting journalism.

If these qualities and requirements appeal to your journalistic interests, talents and experience, apply online today at www.nwi.com/timesjobs.
