Albany Business Review seeks government reporter
The Albany Business Review is seeking a dynamic reporter who is in journalism for the thrill that comes with breaking news, owning a beat and the satisfaction of writing meaningful enterprise.
The Albany Business Review covers government from the outside looking in, concentrating on reporting how the actions of government affects small business, with an emphasis on taxes, regulation and economic development policy. When we do cover politics it is through the prism of how it impacts business.
That said, our priority is finding the right reporter for our newsroom more than a government reporter, and we may realign our beat structure to match up the reporter’s interests with the needs of our readers.
The Albany Business Review is an American City Business Journals news organization with a wonderful opportunity for an experienced reporter in our Albany, N.Y. newsroom. If you are an energetic reporter with a passion to break news every day and inform readers, this is a great place for you. We need reporters who thrive in a fast-paced environment.

This is a newsroom where you can do the best work of your career, reach a national audience and be a vital news source for the local business leaders while living in a quality, affordable community with mountains, lakes and some of the greatest cities near by.
Our next reporter will have strong critical thinking skills; a deep commitment to story structure and clarity in writing; a devotion to source building, sharp interviewing skills. Our next reporter will be intensely competitive.
