Politics reporter 

The Richmond Times-Dispatch is looking for a state politics and government reporter with the skill, range and drive to hold government entities accountable while covering the General Assembly and state political campaigns. 

The ideal candidate is someone who can cover a debate on deadline, develop sources that lead to strong enterprise stories and utilize FOIA to shine a spotlight on governmental lapses. 

We’re looking for a reporter who is aggressive and fair, a journalist who can spot stories others have missed. This journalist should be someone who writes clearly and accurately, a self-starter who is also eager to collaborate as a member of an experienced, award-winning team. 

This is a chance to cover government and politics in an ever-changing purple state. It’s not boring. If you’re up for the challenge, we want to hear from you.
