Description:

The Villages Daily Sun, a rapidly growing 60,000-circulation daily newspaper, is seeking a medical/science/technology reporter who shares our passion for community journalism.

This is a premier beat chronicling the healthy aging of America in the nation’s largest senior living community (125,000 people that will double in size in the next 20 years). Our newspaper is part of a media group that also produces a daily TV news show, operates an FM radio station and publishes a monthly magazine to which our newsroom staff may contribute.

Candidates need a bachelor's degree or equivalent, and at least a year of professional newsroom experience. The ideal candidate is a self-starter with strong interviewing skills who is adept at making technical topics understandable. Familiarity with Florida’s social and political climate is a plus.

The Daily Sun is a community-first newsroom, not a digital-first newsroom. This means that we place high value on hyper-local content that is reported and edited at the local level, for a rapidly expanding print product. This is a rare opportunity to focus on journalistic quality without the distraction of a digital workflow.

We're about a 90-mile drive to the beach, the theme parks and the historic neighborhoods of Gainesville and St. Augustine. Our employees also have access to a highly regarded workplace charter school system in one of the state's most idyllic settings.

 

Apply by sending your resume and strongest clips to the attention of Staff Development Editor John DeClerk at john.declerk@thevillagesmedia.com.
