Description:

Reporter

GateHouse Media, with three daily news organizations in suburban Philadelphia, seeks a general assignment reporter who understands we live in a digital-first world. We are on a mission to grow digital audience and want reporters who understand that is our future. The reporter must be able and willing to tell stories on all platforms. Photo and video skills will give the top candidates a big edge. Breaking news/public safety and/or courts experience also will be a plus. Social media acumen also will be expected. Good critical-thinking and people skills are a must. We work in a team environment and have a staff dedicated to producing the best local journalism in the area.

Two years’-plus daily newspaper experience is preferred, though college graduates with internship experience also will be considered. This position would be based out of our Bucks County Courier Times/The Intelligencer office, which is roughly 40 minutes from downtown Philadelphia. The reporter also would contribute to sister papers, including the Burlington County Times.

Electronic resumes and work samples to Regional Executive Editor Shane Fitzgerald at sfitzgerald@couriertimes.com will accepted. No phone calls for initial contact, please.
