The News-Leader Media Group in Springfield, Mo., is looking for a reporter who is energetic, passionate about holding elected officials accountable, and is a critical thinker who can create enterprising coverage for our print and Web editions.
We are a community-focused news organization that creates deep local content for a daily and Sunday newspaper, weekly newspapers, glossy magazines, several Web sites, a mobile site and a news-based text messaging service. The ideal candidate has a track record of looking beyond meetings and press releases for news, is focused on the impact of events on real people not bureaucrats, has experience reporting through documents and data, and understands that occasionally every watchdog needs to do more than growl.
