The Rio Grande SUN, a 9,000 paid circulation weekly in Española, New Mexico, seeks a crime beat reporter who wants to dig into stories.
Our cops and courts beat offers an energetic investigator, with strong writing skills, the opportunity to follow exciting crime news in a county rife with politics and law enforcement agencies overworked and underfunded. Court cases alone make this an interesting job and a great learning experience.
A great place to write news, if that’s what you want to do. Please no feature writers.
Beginning salary $24,000. Several large pay raises would come quickly in the first year to a performing person who wants to write news the way it was taught 20 years ago. Good compensation package including health, vacation, sick and profit-sharing plan. Please submit resume to Robert Trapp at firstname.lastname@example.org
