The Lima News seeking Reporter
Specialty General Assignment
Job Status Full-time
Are you a multi-media journalist who is full of ideas and enjoys digging up your own stories instead of waiting for an editor to send you off to the local sewer system meeting? Do you dare try something new and different?
If so, The Lima News – an award-winning newspaper in West Central Ohio – would love to hear from you. We are seeking a general assignment reporter who is a self-starter with a healthy competitive streak. The job candidate needs the skills to be able to chase down and write a hard news story and the creativity and insights to dazzle readers with a compelling feature. A commitment to fairness and accuracy is essential. Our newsroom works hard, but has fun. We will consider soon-to-be college graduates who have had an internship or worked on their student newspaper. The position includes some weekend and evening work.
We offer a great facility, a great staff and a competitive salary and benefits package. We are a mid-size newspaper (20,000 daily, 24,000-Sunday) with an excellent reputation for solid journalism, winning AP General Excellence awards 14 of the last 17 years.
