Description:

The Chronicle in Centralia has an opening for a general assignment reporter specializing in local government coverage to help us tell the stories of our county of 75,000 people and surrounding communities. 

Our newsroom produces three print editions per week, periodical special sections and posts content daily to our website, Chronline.com. We pride ourselves on the quality and quantity of the news we produce and are well-respected for our fierce commitment to the public's right to know. In recent years, our news staff has won recognition from the Pacific Northwest Newspaper Association, the Washington Coalition for Open Government and the Society for Professional Journalists.

Photography skills are a plus. We'd prefer a candidate with experience but will take applications from talented grads.

The position is full-time — 40 hours per week. Medical, dental, 401k and paid time off are offered for full-time employees. The Chronicle is located in Lewis County — a 90-minute drive from Seattle, Portland, two active volcanoes and the rugged Washington coast and offers some of the best outdoor opportunities in the region.

If you think you'd fit in well with our newsroom, send a cover letter, resume and clips to Editor Natalie Johnson at njohnson@chronline.com.
