The Waxahachie Daily Light and Midlothian Mirror have an immediate opening for a general reporter. We hope to fill the position by early December, so those who apply will be quickly notified.
The position will begin as a do-it-all reporter, learning the nuances of the newsroom, working with our pagination studio, and assisting on the coverage of multiple beats for the first two months. Our growing newsroom plans to expand after the New Year and will assign this position to a permanent beat at that time.
Those with aspirations to lead a sports, crime or features desk are encouraged to apply. Advanced working knowledge of AP Style, social media platforms, and a 21st-century approach to storytelling are preferred. Recent college graduates with prior collegiate or other newsroom experience will be considered. This is an entry-level position.
