POLITICS REPORTER

We’re looking for a reporter with the energy to cover a key county beat as well as state and national politicians for our burgeoning Mohawk Valley region.

A new hospital, nanocenter and recreational facility are just a few of the major projects on the horizon. Development in the area is expanding and it’s a great time to report from the ground up. This beat also stays on top of our state and national representatives, relaying top political news to our hungry readership.

Are you ready for that challenge?

The Observer-Dispatch is a daily newspaper with a growing website in Central New York and we want you to join our versatile news team. Applicants for the position should have a take-charge attitude and be prepared to deliver on key topics that drive our online and print readership. We encourage reporters to move beyond just covering institutions and focus on the real people who are impacted in the community. We believe in the power of solid, layered reporting, compelling storytelling and eye-catching visuals.

The O-D is a progressive, collaborative news operation that focuses on delivering engaging local content to our readers on various platforms. We are passionate about what we do here and are committed to serving readers and helping our journalists develop new skills. Situated at the base of the Adirondacks, the Mohawk Valley is a short drive from Syracuse and Albany, and only a few hours from New York City and Boston. The Utica/Rome area is a lively region with a diverse population, many prominent colleges, great restaurants and lots of outdoor activities.

Please send a letter, resume and work samples to Executive Editor Ron Johns at rjohns@uticaod.com
