Description:

The Brazosport Facts, a 10,000-circulation, daily newspaper and magazine publisher, is seeking a reporter ready to jump headfirst into a story-rich environment on the Texas Gulf Coast.

This is an opportunity for recent graduates at a newspaper with a strong history of preparing young journalists for successful careers. Reporters are able to adjust schedules based on the demands of the job and are eligible for overtime pay.

The Facts is a community-focused daily newspaper that has covered the Brazoria County region for more than a century. The role offers an opportunity for journalists who have a passion for keeping residents informed about happenings down the street or what is affecting them from Austin.

An ideal candidate understands deadlines and has solid reporting skills.

The Facts is based in Clute, Texas, in Brazoria County, a fast-growing region south of Houston that offers that small-town feel without being too far from the nation’s fourth-largest city. The coverage area stretches from the Houston suburbs to the beach.

Competitive pay, paid time off and benefits.

Please send a cover letter, resume and at least three writing samples to news@thefacts.com.

No phone calls, please.
