Aggressive community newspaper seeks energetic, enterprising reporter

The Palestine Herald-Press, a five-day-a-week newspaper in Palestine, Texas, seeks an enterprising reporter to cover local city government and general assignment. We're looking for an energetic self-starter with cutting-edge digital skills and a knack for hitting the streets and talking to people. We want someone who can see stories that others miss, and wants to do more than cover municipal meetings. Experience is a plus, but we will consider a talented, hardworking novice who is eager to learn, hungry to grow, and willing to take direction. We have a demanding newsroom that sets the bar high for writing and reporting but also is relaxed, flexible, and fun. Our aggressive, rapidly improving newsroom wants to build on the improvements we've made over the last seven months. If interested, send a resume and four or five writing samples to Editor Jeff Gerritt at, or call 903.729.0281, Ext. 256.
