  • Own the beat, dictating day-to-day coverage and thriving on digging out source-driven exclusives.
  • Relentlessly develop sources and manage relationships with high-level executives and other community leaders.
  • Scoop competitors on every story of any significance, not only telling readers what happened, but why and how.


  • Desire and ability to break news and to identify newsworthy events and sources
  • Strong analytical and investigative-interviewing skills
  • Ability to work both independently and collaboratively
  • Ability to relate comfortably to a wide range of people, in person, on the phone and online
  • A clear drive to develop sources and build audience
  • Solid understanding of news writing, journalistic ethics and story structure.
  • Ability to leverage relationships with sources to deliver content that differentiates the organization from competitors.
  • Multimedia skills, including video, photos, broadcast, on-camera, helpful.


  • 1-3 years reporting in a newsroom
  • Track record in the news business of building, maintaining and engaging an audience in print and online.
  • Social media mavens held in high regard.
