The St. Cloud Times, part of Gannett, Inc. and the USA TODAY NETWORK, is looking for a reporter who wants to own coverage of the issues and stories in our key suburbs - their school districts, city government and slice-of-life stories. Our ideal candidate is positive, has the ability to learn about and explain key community issues in education and government, and the desire to get out of the office to get the story. Excellent reporting, writing and video skills and a strong social media voice are part of the package.
We’re a digital-first newsroom with proven success in delivering nationally award-winning journalism, and we use audience metrics to help guide our coverage.
You’ll be working in our new office four blocks from the Mississippi River in historic downtown St. Cloud. Your co-workers are dedicated fellow reporters, photographers and editors who are committed to experimentation, teamwork and serving our community. We want to help make you better, and we want you to help us do the same!
Recent graduates and reporters with some experience and a willingness to relocate in or near the St. Cloud area should apply.
A valid drivers license and reliable transportation is required for this role.
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. It’s 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.
