Houston weekly seeking hungry reporter

Do you have a nose for news and passion for telling compelling stories that impact a community? Then The Leader, a weekly newspaper in the heart of Houston, wants you to be a leading member of its editorial staff.

Serving the bustling Houston Heights as well as prized, historic neighborhoods such as Garden Oaks and Oak Forest, The Leader was founded in 1954 and continues to connect with the community like no other news source in the area. It’s owned and operated by McElvy Media, a growing company that wants to crank up its coverage and strengthen its relationship with readers both in print and online.

We’re looking for a hungry, self-starting journalist who wants to be first, and be right, while tackling a range of topics that include breaking news, feel-good features and impactful enterprise pieces. This is an opportunity to learn and grow as a multi-faceted reporter on a small staff, which means you’ll have a hand in all aspects of producing a story – generating ideas, reporting, writing, taking photos and posting content to our website and social media.

If all that sounds exciting, we want to hear from you. Please send a resume, cover letter, references and up to five writing samples to The Leader editor Adam Zuvanich at
