The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette is looking for an experienced, energetic reporter for a position on its state Capitol bureau. 

The Democrat-Gazette, based in the capital city of Little Rock, has maintained a three-reporter bureau since the 1980s. 

Our readers are intensely interested in news of state government and politics and those stories are among the most popular. Stories from the Capitol bureau often land on the front page and get good engagement on social media and on our website. 

This bureau opening is for an enterprising journalist with a proven ability to write about politics, legislation, agencies, FOIA issues and anything else related to state government coverage. Our preference is for applicants who have a journalism degree and/or experience covering politics.

A plus would be an ability to handle large amounts of data, including in spreadsheets, and a knowledge of social media. 

Arkansas, as small as it is, produced one president and might provide more. The state is a gold mine of good stories.

The Democrat-Gazette is known for its innovative program in which subscribers read today’s edition on iPads. We also provide breaking news on our website,

This is a safety-sensitive position. A candidate must pass a drug screening as well as have a clean driving record. We offer benefits such as vacation, holiday and sick time; retirement programs; and health, life and disability insurance.

If you’d like to hear more about our opening or just want to submit your resume, please email Assistant Managing Editor/News Glen Chase at
