Roanoke paper looking for biz reporter
Stephanie Ogilvie of the Roanoke Times in southwest Virginia has posted the following on its website:
The Roanoke Times | roanoke.com seeks a savvy reporter to cover western Virginia’s growing technology community and other regional business stories.
We want a reporter to write about nationally recognized companies and small startups born out of research at Virginia Tech, home to one of the nation’s top engineering programs. We’re looking for a tech geek jazzed about innovation, but who also understands venture capitalism and government funding.
We value reporters who thrive on change, experimentation and a journalistic mission to serve the community. This position is based in our New River Valley office, 10 minutes from Virginia Tech, and the reporter also will cover real estate, tourism and other business stories throughout the region.
More recent job openings include a part-time obituary consultant and a community journalist to cover Salem.
