Lima News in Ohio seeks a business reporter

Here’s your chance to report news that people want to read in a place that wants to do it right, all in an up-and-coming city that remains surprisingly affordable.

The Lima News has an opening for a business reporter. The beat focuses on business news our readers can use, about local businesses opening or thriving, the local labor market and other pocketbook issues.

We’re open to someone just breaking into the business who might benefit from coaching by veteran editors or to an experienced reporter who wants to help us reinvent how we tell people the news that’s relevant to them.

We’re an award-winning newspaper in West Central Ohio that maintains our region’s dominant news website daily while printing twice a week. We value accuracy, diversity and urgency in everything we do. We’re looking for the right mix of inquisitive, creative and practical to help us remain a must-read for our news-savvy audience.

Send your resume, cover letter and at least three writing samples to David Trinko, Editor, at dtrinko@limanews.com.
