Overview

The Virginian-Pilot/Daily Press -- an award-winning, multi-platform news operation with a growing audience -- seeks aggressive, digitally savvy news reporters who understand how to use all the tools in the journalism toolbox.

 

 

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

Responsibilities

Here’s why you should work for us:

  • We have several available beats, including health, education, municipal and food/dining. After a bit of a hiring hiatus, due to COVID, we are looking to strengthen our newsroom with talented journalists who want to make a difference.
  • We’re one of the largest news operations in Virginia, with coverage from Richmond to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. That’s a big audience — looking for both statewide and hyperlocal coverage.
  • We aim for ambitious journalism that makes an impact on Virginians’ lives. Our reporters have won numerous national awards in the past five years for strong watchdog and investigative work.
  • We are passionate about what we do here and are committed to both serving readers and helping our journalists take chances and develop new skills.

 

Qualifications

Here’s what we ask in return:

  • You must have strong news judgment, a collaborative approach and a desire to get the story swiftly and accurately.
  • You know how to build a beat through strong sourcing and understand the need to not only write stories about institutions or systems but those who are affected by their decisions.
  • You appreciate the depth and variety a beat offers readers, from quick hits to breaking news to features and explanatory stories.
  • You must be able to thrive in our fast-paced operation and capable of producing a variety of content: photos and videos, tweets, short updates for web, and print stories with deep context.

A college degree is required. At least two years’ experience in daily journalism is preferred.

 

The Virginian-Pilot/Daily Press is a progressive news operation with a focus on communication and collaboration at all levels. Working with fellow reporters, photographers and senior editors is a typical day on the job. Input and creativity is not just welcome, it’s required. In this ever-changing media landscape, a sense of humor also helps.
