Sterling, IL

Sauk Valley Media in northwestern Illinois is looking for a dynamic reporter with a desire to make a difference through community journalism. 

The right candidate will cover the education news beat, while also writing features and enterprise stories that explore the subjects real people (our readers) actually spend their time thinking and talking about. And you will be part of a reporting team that works with experienced editors who are serious about teaching and leading. 

Sauk Valley Media publishes two daily newspapers: the Telegraph, in Dixon, and the Daily Gazette, in Sterling. We've been part of family-owned Shaw Media for more than 150 years and plan to continue producing outstanding newspapers – in print, online and beyond – for another 150. 

Some professional experience preferred. Priority will be given to candidates who can generate quality in-depth and investigative pieces. Must possess and maintain a valid driver's license, proof of insurance, reliable transportation and acceptable motor vehicle record.

Send a cover letter that explains your interest in community journalism, along with a résumé and a list of three references who will swear you're too good for us to pass up.
