The Galveston County Daily News has an immediate opening for a senior reporter.

The paper’s award-winning staff covers a growing county of more than 300,000 people on the Texas Gulf Coast less than an hour’s drive from Houston and based in one of the state’s most popular tourist towns.

The job requires experience reporting for a daily or weekly newspaper. It entails covering a variety of subjects.

The senior reporter is first among peers, mentoring, guiding and assisting the editors in managing less experienced colleagues. It’s an excellent job for journalists who’ve learned how to work beats and are looking for new challenges, but aren’t ready to hang up the notebook.  

The editors care about both the quality of the newspaper and the quality of the work experience. When our reporters move on, they tend to move up, rather than out of journalism.

We prize thorough, balanced reporting written with style and vigor. 

If you’re a solid reporter, excited about journalism, ready to work hard, eager to learn and able to share what you already know, this might be the job for you.

The Daily News offers solid pay and benefits including paid vacation, sick leave, health insurance and a 401k with a generous company match.  

Send a resume and no more than five well-chosen clips to Editor Michael A. Smith — Please put the words “Application for reporter job” in the subject line.
