Description:

The Las Vegas Sun is seeking a reporter to cover one of the most dynamic and compelling beats in our market — the gaming industry.

This is a business reporting position that also focuses on other topics related to Las Vegas’ resort economy, including capital projects, labor/management issues and transportation in the tourist corridor.

We’re seeking an experienced, energetic and inquisitive reporter for the job, which comes with an opportunity to quickly become one of the most widely followed journalists in Las Vegas. Our audience has an appetite for stories about Southern Nevada’s casino and hospitality industry, the predominant driver of the region’s economy.

This is a vibrant time to become a reporter in Las Vegas. Tourism is booming, unemployment has shrunk and recent construction activity includes a $1.8 billion football stadium to house the NFL’s Raiders.

The successful candidate will have at least four years’ experience covering business or news in a midsized city or large metro and the ability to produce content ranging from quick rewrites of news releases to long-form narratives. In addition, the candidate will have excellent writing skills, a collaborative personality and the ability to self-direct. Editing and pagination experience is a plus.

Your work will also appear in Las Vegas Weekly, the city’s leading news, arts, entertainment and culture publication.

The Sun is a product of Greenspun Media Group, a family-owned organization whose titles also include: award-winning LasVegasSun.com and VegasInc.com, the valley’s leading business report; and Las Vegas Magazine, which is distributed in most of the hotel rooms on the Las Vegas Strip.

Interested in applying?  If so, please send your resume and clips to jobs@gmgvegas. com with ‘Gaming Reporter’ in the subject line.

Greenspun Media Group is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
