Nashville Biz Journal seeks reporter
The Nashville Business Journal is seeking an aggressive reporter to lead the conversation in Nashville’s health care and technology scenes.
Middle Tennessee’s $70 billion health care industry is the largest player in the local economy. The region is home to hospital powerhouses HCA Holdings and Community Health Systems and hundreds of other health care services companies. Decisions made in Nashville impact the delivery of health care across the country.
A key part of the industry’s growth is in health care IT. This post also covers the region’s fast-growing technology industry, which is led by health tech startups. The success of this emerging sector will play a key role in Nashville’s future as it works to position itself as a tech hotbed. Nashville is recruiting a growing number of young professionals and entrepreneurs to the city, with lots of attention on boosting tech talent and startups in the city.
This reporter must produce compelling, high-impact breaking news and enterprise that is rich with perspective and context for Nashville’s business community. Business Journal reporters are expected to be the go-to source for news and analysis about their coverage area. They must break important news online and give readers behind-the-scenes analysis in print.
This reporter must be able to marry strong traditional journalism skills — source building, sharp interviewing techniques, strong analytical and investigative reporting skills, clear writing, document use — with online and social media savvy.
