  News - Suburban Reporter
Employer: USA Today Network Job Posted: 6/22/2019
Location: Memphis, TN Job Status: Full Time

Job Description:

The Commercial Appeal, part of the USA TODAY NETWORK, is seeking a reporter to cover the growing Memphis suburbs of Collierville, Lakeland and Arlington. This reporter would also do some spot breaking news and would be expected to do enterprise stories from the suburbs as well as contribute to breaking news projects.

This reporter should have the dexterity to both cover the news and handle social media promotion about the work. It is as important to visit Starbucks and the Friday Night football game as it is to attend town meetings or zoning boards.

We expect reporters to mine their beats for trend and enterprise stories and to look for ways to write about interesting people in the suburbs.

Strong analytical skills are helpful. Data reporting skills are also a plus. It is a requirement that the reporter be curious about how life in the suburbs is lived and bring those stories to readers on our website and in print weekly.

The job will also involve working a weekend day.

If you want to come to a fast-moving, interesting news town and join a dynamic Commercial Appeal newsroom within The USA TODAY NETWORK, this could be the right opportunity for you.

Requirements Preferred:

Experience writing for an online/digital news website, newspaper or magazine
Excellent communication and time management skills; ability to deliver on deadline
Ability to write accurately and ethically with style and detail
Good understanding of audience and community-building on social media sites and/or blogs
Degree in journalism or similar area of study is preferred

Application Instructions:

When applying, please include a single document with as much of the following as possible: a brief cover letter explaining your interest and fit for the position, your updated resume, and portfolio/clips/links to a few samples of your work. Its important that these items be assembled into a single document, preferably in PDF format. The application will only allow one document upload. Completing these steps will ensure that you receive the highest consideration.
