M. ROBERTS MEDIA, LLC

Victoria, TX

The Victoria Advocate, a national and state award-winning community newspaper, is hiring a city/county government reporter.

The reporter will work to keep the public informed on the activities of the Victoria City Council and Victoria County Commissioners Court as well as the activities of the non-elected administration. The job is more than attending meetings, it includes doing more in-depth reporting after government meetings to break down city and county business clearly for readers in separate stories. The reporter should have a drive to write both community features as well as hard-hitting news and be able to find the interesting stories hidden among the day-to-day operations of the local government. Building relationships with elected officials as well as everyday members of the community is key.

Experience working with public records, breaking down legal jargon and analyzing government documents is a plus. Some reporting experience is beneficial. Being a Spanish speaker is helpful, but not required.

We have an excellent benefits package including medical, dental, vision, life and accident insurance, 401(k) retirement plan, paid holidays and a generous paid time off program.

Victoria is two hours from Houston, Austin, San Antonio and Corpus Christi and an hour from the beach. Please send your cover letter, resume and samples of your work to managing editor Becky Cooper at bcooper@vicad.com.
