Economy Reporter

Gannett Co. Inc. Reno , NV 89510

Posted 4 months ago


The Reno Gazette Journal is looking for a sharp, energetic reporter to give readers the information they need to succeed in Reno's new economy. This position has a business and finance element, but it's not about covering board meetings or ribbon cuttings. This beat will take a daily look at the issues that personally affect our readers and create a guide to navigate those issues.

Examples might include strategies for buying a house in a super-competitive market, pros and cons of tapping home equity in a housing boom, comparing costs at state colleges, peeling back the onion-like layers of local bureaucracy in starting a business, saving money/time using the new grocery/goods/service deliveries, or knowing how to check on day-care providers' records.

This reporter will produce quick reads bouncing off topical events, in-depth enterprise, watchdog reporting and journalism with impact that readers will want to share and talk about. This market is experiencing a growing economy and hot real estate market, and an influx of newcomers who are changing the texture of Reno's culture. It's a bubbling concoction that is perfect for the enterprising reporter to find great stories.

Video and photography skills and digital storytelling experience are a plus.

The right candidate will work in one of Gannett's top-producing mid-sized newsrooms, known for punching above our weight and valuing investigative and watchdog journalism. There's a deep pool of experienced editors and reporters to learn from, and the newsroom nurtures a culture of collegial cooperation and professional support.

The job also means living in Reno, Nevada, which is one of the top destinations for outdoor recreation, with Lake Tahoe, dozens of ski resorts, bike trails, rock climbing, hiking, hunting and fishing just minutes away.

The successful candidate will:

  • Report and deliver cogent news stories, via stories,

video, Twitter or other methods, of interest to our Nevada audience.

  • Use metrics to inform story choices and shape beat


  • Use social media to reach readers where they spend

their time and attention.

  • Provide cogent analysis of trends and issues that

affect the daily lives of readers.

  • Use social media to reach out to new and existing

readers and create an identity online that readers connect with.


  • Bachelor's degree in journalism or related


  • At least three years of reporting experience

  • Excellent communication and time management skills

  • Attention to detail and unflagging dedication to

accuracy and fairness.
