BusinessDen.com, an online business news site covering Denver, seeks an experienced, energetic reporter to cover commercial real estate, our publication’s most important beat.
You will scour public records and, critically, develop sources by building a network of developers, brokers and others in the industry.
This position offers the chance to cover major deals in a major league town: In recent months, we’ve broken the news that Denver Nuggets owner Stan Kroenke wants to redevelop the parking lots around Ball Arena, and that Russell Wilson’s home purchase set a Denver-area sales price record.
Applicants should have at least three years reporting experience and a demonstrated interest in business news.
The position will be an addition to the newsroom, allowing the existing reporter on the beat (who is also the editor) to focus on other stories and duties. You will be based out of our newsroom at the edge of downtown Denver. Attendance at BusinessDen evening events and other real estate industry networking required.
BusinessDen is a profitable, growing, subscription-based website founded in 2015. Our stories regularly appear in the Denver Post, which licenses our content. We have a 15-year-old sister site, Richmond BizSense, in Richmond, Virginia.
Benefits include health insurance, a retirement plan with company match and generous paid vacation.
Please send a cover letter explaining your biggest scoop, clips and a resume to editor Thomas Gounley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
