PMG REPORTER 2021
The Pamplin Media Group is looking for three full-time multi-media reporters to join its team in Oregon.
These reporters will work in partnership with the staff of our community newsrooms in the Portland metropolitan area.
Reporters will contribute to our weekly print and daily digital/ social media products and collaborate on special sections and web-based projects. Beats will include education and local governments as well as features and breaking news.
The Pamplin Media Group is a local, family-owned media company that includes more than 20 weekly newspapers/websites, the Portland Tribune and several specialty publications and websites. It reaches a combined print and digital audience of more than 1.2 million readers each week.
The ideal candidates will have a bachelor’s degree in journalism and at least two years of professional reporting experience. They will demonstrate excellent time management skills and an ability to write engaging, accurate stories on deadline. Although they may work with a professional photographer, reporters should be able to shoot photos for their own stories when needed and contribute to video projects as well as podcasts. Bilingual English/Spanish skills are a plus and could lead to additional opportunities.
Reporters use social media to share their work and engage our audiences across multiple platforms, work well on deadlines and demonstrate an ability to manage a flexible work schedule that may include evenings and weekends. We are a digital-first operation, and reporters are expected to post daily content independent of weekly publication schedules.
Reporters are valuable members of our newsroom teams whose input contributes to healthy communities in Oregon. They also develop and practice leadership skills in our newsrooms and communities that can help them achieve their career goals.
Please email cover letter, resume, references and at least three samples of published work, including photos and one written news and/or feature story. Send to John Schrag, executive editor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
