The Orlando Sentinel is seeking a night-shift breaking news reporter to join its Justice & Safety team. This position is ideally suited to journalists who are quick-thinking and versatile, have strong news judgment and relish chasing down a story as it develops.
Tribune Publishing is committed to hiring people with diverse backgrounds, voices and visions. Be yourself. Bring yourself. Because that’s the only way we will deliver on our mission to provide meaningful journalism to the diverse communities we serve. We hold ourselves accountable for fostering inclusion and opportunity across race, gender, age, creed, identity and experience. Join us.
You’ll need to be nimble – getting a story online in minutes, while sifting through the noise of a chaotic situation to identify reliable information – but also show the ability to dig deeper, utilizing public records, databases and sources to write compelling follow-up and enterprise stories. The successful candidate must work well on a team and on deadline. Social media skills – both for reporting and research – are required, as is a college degree. The ability to shoot and edit basic video is also expected. Spanish-language proficiency is preferred. Hours are 2:30 to 11:30 p.m. Monday through Friday with an hour break. This is a full-time position with a competitive salary and benefits.
