The Villages Daily Sun, Florida’s largest daily printed newspaper, is seeking a reporter who shares our passion for community journalism.
We're looking for a storyteller who can handle a variety of assignments including human interest feature stories, event coverage and general news.
The Daily Sun is a community-first newsroom, not a digital-first newsroom. This means that we place high value on hyper-local content that is reported and edited at the local level, for a rapidly expanding print product. This is a rare opportunity to focus on journalistic quality without the distraction of a digital workflow.
Our newspaper is part of a media group that also produces a daily TV news show, operates an FM radio station and publishes a monthly magazine and niche special products to which our newsroom staff may contribute.
Candidates need a bachelor's degree or equivalent, and familiarity with Central Florida is a plus. We prefer candidates with professional newsroom experience; however, we have a strong track record of helping entry-level journalists take their work from good to great. The ideal candidates will be self-starters, have strong writing skills and be creative and flexible.
We're about a 90-mile drive to the beach, the theme parks and the historic neighborhoods of Gainesville and St. Augustine. Our employees also have access to a highly regarded workplace charter school system in one of the state's most idyllic settings.
