The major metro in our state has enticed another member of our news team away, so we're searching for another great reporter to join our team. 

The Jonesboro Sun is seeking a self-motivated, inquisitive applicant to fill an open full-time reporter position. This position will include general assignment reporting duties as well as beat-specific responsibilities. This position requires some night and weekend shifts.

While a bachelor's degree — preferably in journalism or communications — is preferred, it is not a requirement if the candidate has prior reporting experience at a daily or weekly newspaper or media outlet.

The Jonesboro Sun, which publishes mornings seven days a week, offers competitive pay with benefits, including vacation time, health insurance and a matching 401k retirement plan.

Jonesboro is a thriving city with a population of about 77,000 in Northeast Arkansas and is home to Arkansas State University, which has a main campus enrollment of about 13,200.

Send resume and at least five work examples to: Editor Chris Wessel at, or 518 Carson St., Jonesboro, Ar., 72401.
