Responsibilities

The Reporter-Herald in Loveland, Colorado, is seeking a motivated reporter to cover city government, politics and other general assignment news in Loveland and surrounding communities. The successful candidate is a self-starter who is capable of producing multiple stories per day while developing longer enterprise pieces, and is as comfortable covering a house fire or neighborhood feature as he/she is covering a contentious city council meeting.
