SEEKING ENTERPRISE/WATCHDOG REPORTER
DelawareOnline.com/The News Journal is seeking an aggressive, digital-minded reporter to cover the City of Wilmington. But this beat is much more than covering City Hall. Wilmington is one of the most complex cities in America. On one hand it leads the nation in teen shootings. On the other, this is where America's businesses come to wage legal war. It's an urban suburb of Philadelphia that celebrate its rich diversity and neighborhoods while facing all the challenges of an urban city.
We want someone who can tell these stories and juggle multiple assignments, all while holding city officials accountable. This journalist will carry out one of our core public service missions: To protect reader interests, uncover wrongdoings and provide compelling context and analysis. This reporter should focus on telling readers why and how events in the city affect quality of life in Wilmington and how these events ripple throughout the state.
This job requires a gumshoeing, data-searching reporter who is good at source-building. This reporter must produce regular watchdog journalism that leads to change, and in concert with colleagues, shapes storytelling to meet audience needs and interests on various digital platforms.
The News Journal/DelawareOnline.com is a leader in the USA Today Network in watchdog reporting and uses an innovative model to attract and keep digital subscribers through great content.
