Reporter REQ#4964

Full Time at The Villages Media Management

The Villages Daily Sun, America's fastest growing daily newspaper, is seeking reporters who share our passion for community journalism.

Our newspaper (60,000 circulation and growing) is part of a media group that also produces a daily TV news show, operates a radio station and publishes a monthly magazine to which our newsroom staff may contribute. We cater to the retiree demographic, but also cover the population boom in one of the nation’s fastest growing areas.

Candidates need a bachelor's degree or equivalent, and familiarity with Central Florida is a plus. We prefer candidates with professional newsroom experience, however we have a strong track record of helping entry-level journalists take their work from good to great. The ideal candidates will be self-starters, have strong writing skills and be creative and flexible.

The Daily Sun is a community-first newsroom, not a digital-first newsroom. This means that we place high value on hyper-local content that is reported and edited at the local level, for a rapidly expanding print product. This is a rare opportunity to focus on journalistic quality without the distraction of a digital workflow.

We're about a 90-mile drive to the beach, the theme parks and the historic neighborhoods of Gainesville and St. Augustine. Our employees also have access to a highly regarded workplace charter school system in one of the state's most idyllic settings.
