Description:

The Kerrville Daily Times seeks a breaking news reporter for its six-day-a-week newspaper and website in the Texas Hill Country.

The reporter will cover breaking news, crime, courts, public safety, and some general interest. The position will start at 7 a.m. on Tuesday through Friday and will require a Saturday shift. 

The ideal candidate will have some experience working for a newspaper, but we will consider recent college graduates with clips from student newspaper or internship experience. 

The right addition to our team is someone who is self-motivated and takes ownership in their work but remains flexible and has a good attitude. Willingness to work some evening hours and commitment to maintaining a team-oriented mindset is required.

Benefits include working in a positive, family-oriented environment in one of the most beautiful parts of the state. We are located in the Texas Hill Country, just an hour northwest of San Antonio, on the Guadalupe River. We have the charm and relaxed pace of a small resort town, with the cultural amenities of a larger city. Kerrville boasts several art galleries, a symphony, community theaters, summer camps, numerous parks, and a river trail that runs the length of our city. 

We are owned by Southern Newspapers Incorporated, a stable media company that operates a dozen newspapers across Texas and one in Oklahoma. The company offers an excellent benefit package, including 401k matching program, insurance, paid vacation, and opportunity for growth and advancement.
