Charleston paper seeks technology/innovation reporter

February 13, 2015

Posted by Chris Roush

Post and CourierHelp us cover what’s become known as the “Silicon Harbor,” an emerging cadre of innovators and one of the most fascinating, oft-contentious tourism industries in the South.

The Post and Courier, a growing family-owned news organization based in beautiful Charleston, S.C., is looking for a talented writer and journalist to cover technology, innovation and tourism. You’ll join a six-person business desk that covers these sectors, Boeing/aerospace, South Carolina’s ports, an explosive real estate market and more.

We’re looking for someone who is a digital native, can write with clarity and personality and isn’t afraid to immerse themselves in the local start-up culture. This is where TwitPic and CreateSpace, among others, started and our reporter will be able to find out where the next innovation is coming from and tell our readers all about it. Of course, you’ll also be keeping tabs on the tourism industry, including the ongoing debate over cruise ships, horse carriages and rowdy late-night revelers.

We offer a break from the cost-cutting (at all costs) recent history of corporate-owned media companies. The Post and Courier’s local owners have deep roots in the community and care deeply about this news organization and its reputation. While many are still handing out pink slips, we’re adding positions to our newsroom in 2015.

(Oh, yeah, did we mention you’d be living minutes from the beach and in a city that Conde Nast recently ranked the No. 2 place to visit in the world? There’s that, too.)

If you can show us you’re the right fit for this job, send a resume and your three best writing samples to Executive Editor Mitch Pugh at
