Date Posted January 10, 2020 Industry Newspapers / Wires Specialty
Not Specified Job Status Salary Not Specified Description: The
Anchorage Daily News / *******, Alaska's most-read newspaper and
news site, has an immediate opening for a reporter to cover local
news, with an emphasis on education and general assignments. You
need to be solid in the basics: accuracy, context and fairness;
clear and engaging writing; the ability to see stories that affect
people, know how to report them and see through spin and process.
You'll cover a local school district with 48,000 students and 100
languages spoken in local homes, education issues affecting
far-flung communities across Alaska, and a noisy, ongoing statewide
debate about the future of the university system and public
education. You like to dig, know your way around public records,
aren't afraid to ask questions and are naturally and deeply curious
about how things work, whether things work, and if they're broken,
understanding why. You're drawn to solutions as well as problems.
We're a scrappy newsroom with a focus on audience - serving it,
listening to it, growing it, retaining it. We're big enough to have
a robust readership and wide, deep reach, but small enough for
individuals to make immediate and significant impacts and to help
chart our course. We cover a place bursting with rich, complex,
interesting news - and demanding readers who know what good
journalism looks like. We've won two Pulitzer Prizes, are currently
part of the ProPublica Local Reporting Network and this year won
first-place national awards from Investigative Reporters and
Editors, the Society of Professional Journalists and the Online
News Association. We'll be a host newsroom for Report for America
in 2020-21. We're independently owned and offer a competitive
salary and benefits in a diverse, highly livable city of 300,000
with Alaska and all its outdoor opportunities right out the door.
We'll relocate the right candidate. Email a resume, samples of your
work and a brief note telling how you can help us to
