Reporter (SVM)

Sterling, IL

Sauk Valley Media in northwestern Illinois is looking for a dynamic reporter with a desire to make a difference through community journalism.   Sauk Valley Media, part of Shaw Media, publishes two daily newspapers: the Telegraph, in Dixon, and the Daily Gazette, in Sterling.

About This Opportunity:
The right candidate will cover either the police and courts beat, or 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.

Some professional experience preferred, but will accept candidates with an undergraduate degree and experience as an intern or with a college newspaper. 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.
