Reporter - Local Govt. Watchdog

The Green Bay Press-Gazette, part of the USA Today Network, seeks a Watchdog reporter responsible for local government coverage that holds public officials accountable and helps readers make informed decisions about their community, from the spending of their tax dollars to the safety of their neighborhood. The watchdog reporter has a keen eye for important details found in agendas, budgets and other public records while understanding that the best stories are about people. Particular focus will be on producing content of interest for targeted audiences and finding new ways to engage readers through social media, video, and mobile and tablet platforms. Because of night meeting coverage, and the unpredictability of breaking news, the reporter must be flexible in scheduling. Specifically, this position entails creating storytelling that accurately informs, entertains and engages our audiences. The reporter will connect with the community through storytelling and outreach (social media, on camera, forums and community leadership) and will provide thoughtful analysis on complex issues, promote their personal brand and the brands of their colleagues, as well as, the institutional brand.
