Description:

The Bluffton News-Banner is looking for a reporter who can handle every aspect of the job with equal parts professionalism and flair. We need a reporter who can report on the education beat (our county has three high-quality school districts) and is comfortable writing features, designing pages, taking pictures, and generally fulfilling the demands of the profession. We will talk to novices and newbies; if there’s something you need to learn, we’ll teach you.

The employee will join a staff of four other journalists that produces an award-winning print edition six days a week and has a strong digital footprint as well. The schedule is flexible, but some evenings are required and an occasional late night (to midnight or 1 a.m.) will be necessary. We strongly prefer someone who can relocate to Wells County. We are looking to fill the position as soon as possible.

Bluffton is a community of 10,000, It is the county seat of Wells County and the community has paid attention to its quality of life — highlighted by a strong arts presence and an award-winning parks department. The regional centers of Fort Wayne and Indianapolis are 30 miles to the north and 90 miles to the south, respectively.
