The Kingsport Times News is looking for a motivated and aggressive general assignment and multimedia reporter. We need someone who goes beyond routine meeting and police coverage, someone who holds public officials and local leaders accountable, someone who has a knack for capturing conflict and the human element.

The ideal candidate must report to all platforms. This reporter will shoot photos and video and post stories, video and other digital assets online.

The right person will join a collaborative team of dedicated, seasoned journalists who look to find and unearth news – news that people talk about. The Times News strives to look at the larger picture and analyze the information or situation — where is the story going, where might it go next, where could we take it deeper.

The Times News is a daily newspaper serving Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia. Kingsport, Tennessee is located in Northeast Tennessee and offers natural beauty, a wide array of outdoor activities and quality of life. 

Applicants should email a resume, links to work samples and a letter explaining why they want to live and work in Northeast Tennessee to: Editor Rob Walters at
