Reporter REQ#4468

at The Villages Media Management

The Villages Daily Sun, America's fastest growing daily newspaper, is seeking a general assignment reporter who can handle a variety of assignments including feature stories, event coverage, occasional meetings and breaking news, as warranted.

We prefer candidates with a year or two of newsroom experience; however we have a strong track record of helping entry-level journalists take their work from good to great.
 
We believe in the future of print and are defying national trends of declining circulation numbers and downsizing staff. Our success lies in our uncompromising commitment to community journalism, and we’re looking for journalists who share that passion. 
 
In addition to strong reporting/writing skills, the job requires an experimental mindset and appetite for rapid change. Florida residents familiar with the area are a plus.
 
The Daily Sun is part of a media group that also publishes a monthly magazine, produces a TV news show, and operates a radio station - to which our reporters regularly contribute. 
 
We cater to a senior population while covering the story of explosive growth in several surrounding counties. 
 
We're a 90-mile drive to the beach, the theme parks and the historic neighborhoods of Gainesville and St. Augustine. We offer competitive pay, excellent benefits and access to a highly regarded charter school system in one of the state's most idyllic settings.
