Description:

News Reporter

 

The Oskaloosa Herald and Centerville Daily Iowegian are seeking two news reporters to join their respective news teams in southern Iowa.

 

Both positions will be general assignment reporters, one based in Oskaloosa at the Oskaloosa Herald and the other in Centerville at the Daily Iowegian.

 

We seek someone who is curious, a strong writer and learner, and determined to produce important journalism. A recent college graduate or someone with a few years of experience would be well-suited for this position. Both newspapers offer a great opportunity for reporters to grow in a variety of subjects and mediums.

 

Our news reporters go from reporting feature stories on local people to producing important watchdog packages that either hold governments accountable or further educate readers on trends and happenings in their community. Working in our newsroom also means reporters have the freedom to be able to pursue projects they’re interested in that go beyond their day-to-day responsibilities.

 

A college-degree is not required. On-the-job experience preferred but we’ll train the person who is eager to learn and succeed in the field.

 

Interested candidates should email their resume and writing samples to Regional Editor Kyle Ocker by email at kocker@dailyiowegian.com.

When applying, mention you saw this opening listed at JournalismJobs.com.
