General Assignment Reporter

City:  McAlester
Newspaper:  CNHI/McAlester News-Capital
Salary:  negotiable
Job Description:  The nationally-recognized McAlester News-Capital is seeking an experienced general assignment reporter. This candidate must be able to skillfully cover the education and/or hospital beats with breaking news on deadline, in addition to crafting non-deadline public interest stories. The candidate must be able to thrive in a digital-first newsroom and have a nose for news that matters.
We're seeking a team player — someone who is self-driven, self-motivated and aggressively pursues meaningful stories with a single byline or as part of a team. In addition, a love of the English language and grammar is necessary. This person must have a stable, proven work history with good references. We offer a competitive salary and benefits package.
The MN-C is in McAlester, which is considered the hub of southeast Oklahoma and located just a few hours away from Dallas, Oklahoma City and Tulsa. We pride ourselves in growing people looking to hone their skills and add to their journalist toolbox.
Contact:  If interested, please email resume, creative cover letter and 3-5 writing samples to aohanlon@mcalesternews.com.
