You’re more than an editor. You are the Globe Gazette’s “face” in Winnebago and Hancock counties in Iowa. The Globe Gazette seeks an experienced reporter who’s ready to be a community leader. This position will be based out of our Mason City office and will cover Forest City and Britt – including local government, education, public safety and whatever interesting news comes your way.

The successful candidate thrives on independence – they just want to be turned loose on the community to meet new people and find out what’s important to our audience there. They’ll be skilled at engaging on social media, developing sources, sussing out the news from government documents and writing amusing features about people of interest. If you’re a journalist who needs institutional reporting to find your stories, this isn’t the job for you.

Big, big plus to the person who has done lots of Facebook Lives and has shot their own photos on occasion.

Send a resume and five of the clips that best represent what you love to write.
