Description:

The Bangor Daily News, an innovative, award-winning and family-owned digital media company, has an immediate opening for an ambitious reporter covering news in Belfast, Maine.

 

We’re looking for a fast-moving reporter to cover breaking news and the biggest stories in Belfast and the surrounding area. This creative, destination community is full of interesting stories and curious characters. The position is part of a team of reporters dedicated to producing direct, honest, comprehensive and compelling local reporting of changing communities along Maine’s coast. 

 

If you’re the right person for this challenge, this is how we would describe you: You want to be the go-to person for trusted news in your area. You can explain the importance of a story, and how it serves the audience. You have a track record of landing important scoops in a fast-paced, competitive news environment. You have excellent critical thinking skills. You know that good journalism depends on good sources, so you pride yourself on growing your network to get information that no one else has. You are a savvy digital news consumer comfortable presenting information in different formats — from straight-up news stories to analyses and explainers. 

 

You’d be joining a large, and growing, statewide news organization in its fourth generation of local ownership. We believe that there’s a bright future for newsrooms that invest in good journalism and put their audiences first. This role is a key part of that strategy. 

 

If you think you might be our next great hire, please submit your resume, cover letter and links to at least three clips to jdyer@bangordailynews.com.
