The Virginian-Pilot/Daily Press — an award-winning, multi-platform news operation with a growing audience — seeks an aggressive, digitally savvy city reporter who understands how to use all the tools in the journalism toolbox.

Here’s why you should work for us:

  • This is a high profile beat at the largest news operation in Virginia, with coverage from Richmond to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. That’s a big audience — looking for both statewide and hyperlocal coverage.
  • We aim for ambitious journalism that makes an impact on Virginians’ lives. Our newsroom features many award winners, including multiple Pulitzer finalists.
  • We are passionate about what we do here and are committed to both serving readers and helping our journalists develop new skills. Here you will work with talented editors who encourage you to take chances, grow skills and make a difference.

Here’s what we ask in return:

  • You must have strong news judgment, a collaborative approach and a desire to get the story swiftly and accurately.
  • You know how to build a beat through strong sourcing and understand the need to not only write stories about the people who run this city but those who are affected by their decisions.
  • You appreciate the depth and variety a city beat offers readers, from quick hits to breaking news to features and explanatory stories.
  • You must be able to thrive in our fast-paced operation and capable of producing a variety of content: photos and videos, tweets, short updates for web, and print stories with deep context.


A college degree is required. At least two years’ experience in daily journalism is preferred.
