The ideal candidate must possess exceptional written and oral communication skills, an obsessive attention to detail and organization, a mastery of AP style, the ability to manage multiple projects simultaneously and a strong willingness to work in a team-focused environment. Our fast-paced newsroom includes a diverse mix of news, features, entertainment and community news.
