The Pulitzer Prize-winning Post and Courier is looking for a quick-response reporter to cover breaking news of all kinds across all platforms.

The Post and Courier, the largest daily newspaper in South Carolina, has developed a reputation as one of the nation’s leading watchdog news organizations.

We cover breaking news a bit differently. We don’t chase every crime, crash or fire. We pursue the stories that matter most to our readers. Our goal is quality over quantity. We write the quick online version, then follow up throughout the day working toward a themed, bigger picture enterprise story by the end of the day. Then we look for more enterprise angles to keep the story going. This approach led to the Walter Scott coverage being a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. https://www.postandcourier.com/business/p-c-a-pulitzer-finalist-for-breaking-news-photography/article_18824c1d-fbb3-5725-a015-6d1f8ae4b55b.html

A growing, independently owned news organization based in beautiful Charleston, S.C., The Post and Courier offers a break from the cost-cutting (at all costs) recent history of corporate-owned media companies. Our local owners have deep roots in the community and care about this newspaper and its reputation.

In the past four years, The Post and Courier has been a finalist for a Pulitzer Prize three times, including this year in the Feature Writing category. We expect our next quick-response reporter to help us build upon that tradition.

Send a cover letter, resume and best clips to Executive Editor Mitch Pugh at mpugh@postandcourier.com. We are an equal opportunity employer and drug-free workplace.

The Post and Courier is committed to building a diverse newsroom that reflects the people it covers and the audience it serves. Candidates are encouraged to highlight new perspectives they can bring to our team.
