November 21, 2013

Posted by Chris Roush

The Anchorange Daily News is looking for a smart, creative, energetic reporter to cover a broad range of business news for the Anchorage Daily News, one of America’s best small-metro dailies. With a population of about 300,000, Anchorage is a diverse, dynamic and growing city. The Daily News is owned by the McClatchy Co.

Alaska is a place of superlatives: from the biggest oil field in the U.S. to the world’s largest run of wild salmon, spread from the towering rain forests in the south to the Arctic in the north. We need someone who knows how to work a beat, and can produce everything from spot news for online to enterprise packages for weekend print.

The successful applicant will be able to sift through jargon to make business issues understandable, interesting and relevant to readers. Applicants must have a demonstrated ability to work as part of a team, and be committed to learning and using new technologies and platforms to report stories and interact with readers. Multimedia skills are a must.

We hope to fill this position quickly. We will not consider applicants without at least 12 months of daily newspaper reporting experience. Send a cover letter, resume and half a dozen of your best story clips to: Anchorage Daily News, P.O. Box 149001, Anchorage, AK 99514-9001. Or E-mai

Competitive salary and benefits. We welcome a diversity of applicants.
