News Reporter, Silver City, NM
Friendly, hard-working, upbeat team player wanted. We’re seeking a news reporter at the Silver City Sun-News in the high country of southwest New Mexico. As part of a three-person Bureau, you’ll do a little bit of everything here – from cops and courts, to government meetings, to covering some of the region’s many weekend events. We’re a small town (10,000 pop.) but we break big news. We’ve got murders and fires, lost hikers and SWAT stand offs. We are also home to the internationally-known Tour of the Gila, an annual bicycle race that brought Lance Armstrong to our tiny town two years in a row, an annual blues fest that draws more than 5,000 visitors from across the region, and a host of other arts-related events. You’ll work hard, but you’ll have fun doing it.
We compete with a five-day daily, and two websites, yet we are the only news source that consistently covers crime, courts and breaking news on every available platform. You will break news via Twitter and Facebook and our website, and follow those up for our print edition.
Journalism or related degree required. Send your resume and a cover letter telling us why you think you’d be a good fit for our paper and why you want to make Silver City your home. Put Reporter position in the subject line. Email:  Twitter (@SCSunNews)
