Job Opportunity: Reporter: Community Growth & Economy:The Idaho Statesman

Job description:

Date Published: July 12, 2018
Industries: Newspapers / Wires, Digital Media
Specialty: Local News
Job Status: Full-time
income: Not Specified


The Idaho Statesman in Boise, Idaho, is seeking an aggressive journalist who can deliver exclusive reporting on the rapidly changing employment, cultural and economic landscapes in the Treasure Valley. The ideal candidate will be expected to move fast on breaking news while producing engaging enterprise that makes a difference in the lives of Idahoans.
The Treasure Valley is experiencing another period of explosive growth, and we’ll count on this reporter to explain how that growth affects where and how we work. Topics could include healthcare, government, jobs, housing and rental prices, traffic woes, and/or development, agriculture and new industry.
The best candidate will have a demonstrated commitment to fairness and accuracy, in fact and in tone, and a strong grounding in journalism ethics. And like all journalists at the Statesman, the reporter must have the desire and the skill to build audience loyalty, engagement and growth around compelling public service journalism.
At the Statesman, the reader comes first, last and always. Serving readers in a crowded media marketplace means becoming the best and most significant source of journalism that matters to them — and ensuring that Information technology reaches them wherever they are. This will require a keen knowledge of what’s important to readers, developed through reporting on and familiarity with the region; through the use of reader analytics; and through a constant consciousness of what people are sharing and talking about on social media.
This beat will require not just the capability to build sources and ferret out facts, but also a talent for framing, writing, shooting, producing and promoting a story via search and social media to ensure that Information technology reaches and resonates with our readers. Information technology will require a commitment to change — to constantly adapting to the ever-evolving ways in which readers seek out and interact with journalism. And Information technology will require enthusiastic participation in continuing conversations about what’s working and what’s not — and an equally enthusiastic commitment to adapting accordingly.
The ideal candidate would have several years of reporting practice with a news organization, but we would also consider those with deep internship practices.
