Job Title: Multi-Media Reporter
Pamplin Media Group
The Pamplin Media Group is looking for a full-time reporter with multi-media skills to join its team in Oregon, working out of our offices in Washington County.
Reporters will contribute daily to a variety of news media, including our weekly Beaverton Valley Times and the Tigard-Tualatin Times, tigardtimes.com, beavertonvalleytimes.com, and other digital and social media products, and collaborate on special sections and web-based projects. Beats will include local government, social justice, business and breaking news.
The Pamplin Media Group is a local, family-owned media company that includes more than 20 weekly newspapers/websites, the Portland Tribune and several specialty publications and websites. It reaches a combined print and digital audience of more than 1.2 million readers each week.
The ideal candidates will have a bachelor's degree in journalism and one to two years of professional reporting experience. Time spent working for student publications or internships will be considered. They will demonstrate excellent time management skills and an ability to write engaging, accurate stories on deadline. Although they may work with a professional photographer, reporters should be able to shoot photos for their own stories when needed and contribute to video projects and podcasts. Bilingual English/Spanish skills are a plus and could lead to additional opportunities.
Reporters use social media to share their work and engage our audiences across multiple platforms, work well on deadlines and demonstrate an ability to manage a flexible work schedule that may include evenings and weekends. We are a digital-first operation, and reporters are expected to post daily content independent of weekly publication schedules.
Reporters are valuable members of our newsroom team whose input contributes to healthy communities in the region. They also develop and practice leadership skills in our newsrooms
and communities that can help them achieve their career goals.
Put "Beaverton Reporter 2022" in the subject line.
