Description:

News reporter

Wisconsin Dells and Juneau County

 

Madison Media Partners is looking for a curious, driven self-starter with good people skills, a positive attitude and a great work ethic to keep readers informed about what’s going on in Wisconsin Dells and Juneau County.

 

Home to Wisconsin’s top tourist destination, the region is in the heart of Wisconsin’s driftless area, an ancient landscape untouched by glaciers that offers unlimited outdoor pursuits. The area is also known for its lively arts and music scene.

 

For a storyteller, the region is a gold mine. Politically purple, its diverse population ranges from potato farmers to resort owners. Members of the Ho-Chunk Nation have always called the area home, and immigrant families and student workers regularly travel from South America and Eastern Europe to spend their summers working in the Wisconsin Dells.

 

The successful candidate will be part of a two-person team producing news and feature stories, and shooting photos and videos for wiscnews.com, serving south-central Wisconsin, and its related print products: The Juneau County Star-Times, the Wisconsin Dells Events, the Baraboo News Republic, the Portage Daily Register and the Beaver Dam Daily Citizen. Stories may also appear in the Wisconsin State Journal in Madison.

 

One to two years’ experience in journalism, either in school, internships or on the job, is preferred. Reporters must live in or near their coverage area to respond to breaking news.

 

To be considered for the position, apply online at www.madison.com/workhere. (Select Location: Baraboo) As part of your online application, please attach a cover letter and five samples of your work or links to five recent stories. If you’ve done video work, please also include links to three recent videos.

 

The deadline to apply is Aug. 22.

 

Madison Media Partners is an Equal Employment Opportunity employer. We are committed to maintaining a workforce that accurately reflects our audience and expands our voice. Women, minorities, and people with disabilities are encouraged to apply.

 

Pre-employment background and drug screenings apply.
