August 24, 2022

Posted by Chris Roush

The San Antonio Business Journal, a thriving and growing news organization in the country’s seventh-largest city, is looking for a full-time reporter to help cover the region’s dynamic and rapidly changing business community.

Our reporters must be competitive, nimble and driven to break news about the most important industries, companies and people in the region. They are expected to provide forward-looking business intelligence to savvy readers who will use it to grow their businesses and/or advance their careers. Our content gives them a leg up on their competitors, connects them with decision-makers and delineates growth strategies that work from those that don’t. This usually entails working our source networks and digging up news before it’s announced or readily available.

The ideal candidate will blend traditional journalism skills – source building, sharp news judgment, interviewing prowess and scoop-driven reporting – with online and social media know-how. Reporters in our newsroom don’t just turn in copy. They break hard news while also prioritizing investigative and enterprise reporting that delivers the data and deeper context our readers crave.

  • Curate a Reporter Page for the weekly edition that demonstrates to readers a mastery of the beat.
  • Scoop competitors on every story of importance to the Business Journal audience, telling readers not only what happened, but why and how.
  • Build, develop and maintain a network of important and relevant sources from all areas of the beat, ensuring the network is wide, deep and includes the most important voices from that industry.
  • Study the metrics to determine what readers are interested in and adjusts coverage accordingly.
  • Attend both San Antonio Business Journal and industry-related events.
  • Facilitate/moderate at Business Journal events and be comfortable in taking a leading role in the community.
  • Meet or exceed goals relating to audience-engagement

  • Business news experience a plus
