Colorado paper seeks a business reporter
We’re expanding our reporting team at the Longmont Times-Call newspaper and are seeking to hire two experienced reporters — one to cover local news and features, the other to cover business news — in this vibrant and growing Front Range community about 30 miles north of Denver.
Candidates should have 2 to 5 years of experience at a daily newspaper or online news outlet. They should be aggressive, enterprising and inquisitive, able to juggle everything from breaking news, data-based trend pieces to longer-term investigative projects.
They should be able to report thoroughly and write quickly and clearly in high-pressure, deadline situations, as well as handle longer-term planning, development and execution of in-depth projects and series, including data reporting and analysis.
Furthermore, candidates must have a full range of digital skills, with the ability to use social media, to shoot photos and video, and be willing and ready to learn and master the latest technologies to assist in newsgathering and storytelling.
The Times-Call is owned by Digital First Media’s Prairie Mountain Media group, and stories written by its staff may also appear in sister publications such as the Daily Camera, Colorado Daily and Colorado Hometown Weekly, all in Boulder County, and the Broomfield Enterprise, as well as the DFM-owned Denver Post.
Please send a cover letter, resume and at least 3 writing samples to Central News Editor Matt Sebastian at firstname.lastname@example.org
