Newspaper reporter (Dubuque)

The Telegraph Herald, an employee-owned daily newspaper with a circulation of 29,000, seeks an experienced reporter to join our news team. Be part of a hard-working, aggressive newsroom aiming to produce the best newspaper in the state, both in print and online.

We are looking for a confident journalist comfortable handling everything from features to hard news and as adept at breaking a story on our website in the middle of the afternoon as on the front page the next morning.  A bachelor’s degree or equivalent and three years of experience in a newspaper setting is preferred. Primary responsibilities include writing news and feature stories, taking video and using social media to gather information and inform readers.

Joining our team offers more than just the daily grind of churning out small stories, though. Reporters have time to tackle Sunday centerpieces on larger issues and to craft strong series. Investigative reporting and data-driven work also is encouraged. In addition, our employee-owned paper offers the possibility of raises after a year and the promise of share ownership after five years.

We’re located in a bustling city of more than 50,000 on the banks of the Mississippi River. Dubuque was named to Kiplinger’s Personal Finance’s list of 10 Great Places to Live for 2013. The city offers after-work opportunities ranging from a vibrant arts scene to a variety of nightlife options to an abundance of outdoor recreation possibilities.
