Description:

The Las Vegas Sun and Greenspun Media Group are seeking a General Assignment Reporter.

We are looking for candidates with the flexibility to report on multiple coverage areas, from the casino industry to the school system to health care.  

We want someone who is as comfortable covering a city council meeting as they are interviewing state and national political figures.

This is a job for an experienced, energetic reporter who will become one of the most widely followed journalists in our market. If something significant happens in Las Vegas, you’ll have a chance to report on it. Your work will also appear in Las Vegas Weekly, the city’s leading news, arts, entertainment and culture publication.

The successful candidate will have at least two years of experience covering business or news in a midsize city or large metro area, a strong grasp of social media and the ability to produce content ranging from breaking news to long-form narratives.

In addition, the candidate will have excellent writing skills, a competitive nature, a collaborative personality and the ability to self-direct.



The Las Vegas Sun is a product of Greenspun Media Group, a family-owned company that prides itself on operating collaboratively and collegially across all parts of our organization. 

Our publications also include: Las Vegas Weekly; a group of leading websites, including award-winning LasVegasSun.com and VegasInc.com, the valley’s leading business publication; and Las Vegas Magazine, which is distributed in most of the hotel rooms on the Las Vegas Strip.  We’re building a media company for the next 50 years, and we take pride in the quality and progressive nature of our work. The Las Vegas Sun won the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service in 2009, and GMG’s sites have won EPPY Awards in four of the past five years.

We only hire the best of the best, because we offer the best! Greenspun Media Group offers competitive pay and a benefits package to include: medical, dental, vision, 401K, and a generous PTO (paid time off) plan.
