In The Sheridan Press newsroom, curiosity is key, and we’re looking for a reporter to join our team. 

If you want to work with the best and be a part of an evolving and forward-thinking newsroom, this is the job for you. Successful candidates will be curious and comfortable digging for truth, navigating local government and asking tough questions of authority figures.

The beat available is education/sports reporter, covering the local school systems, community college and helping with local sports coverage.
