Bangor Daily News seeks senior business reporter

June 13, 2024

Posted by Chris Roush

The Bangor Daily News, an innovative, award-winning and family-owned digital media company, has an immediate opening for an ambitious and experienced news reporter to cover business and the regional economy.

This reporter would join a talented team of journalists dedicated to producing direct, honest, comprehensive and compelling news coverage in Greater Bangor, our home market. This role would focus on how business owners and employees are making decisions, what’s opening and closing, and how larger economic trends are shaping life for people who live here.

Bangor grew to prominence in the 19th century as a prosperous industrial hub. It’s now Maine’s third-largest city and home to some fairly complex enterprises, such as Northern Light hospital complex, the University of Maine, Cross Insurance and Bangor Savings Bank. We are looking for a journalist eager to learn how it all works, and who can tackle the kinds of workforce challenges that many communities face.

The ideal candidate moves quickly and knows how to develop sources who can tell them things before anyone else. We’re looking for someone who can find and analyze data, uncover stories from financial documents, and engage with our audience to answer its biggest questions.

This is a great position for an experienced journalist who wants to live in a beautiful place and do work that will have an impact.

You’d be joining a large, and growing, statewide news organization in its fourth generation of local ownership. We believe that there’s a bright future for newsrooms that invest in good journalism and put their audiences first. This role is a key part of that strategy.

If you think you might be our next great hire, please submit your resume, cover letter and links to at least three clips to jdyer@bangordailynews.com.
