Reporter

City: Meeker/Stroud, Oklahoma
Newspaper Company: Blansett Media
Salary: Depends on qualifications
Job Description: Here’s an opening for a reporter to work for the Tri-County Herald and the Stroud American. The job will offer variety and a working environment in which we expect to be the best. Our papers are country weeklies but we expect to excel. The Herald has won two consecutive Sequoyah Awards and we’ll expect that level of work from you. You’ll need great writing chops and an endless curiosity about the people and events in northern Pottawatomie and Lincoln counties. We value great photography and layout and will expect you to contribute to that, too. You can plan on covering meetings, city government, high school sports, school issues, livestock shows and anything that interests our readers. Recent unusual stories have included a drive-through prayer chapel in Meeker, noodling in the Deep Fork River, sisters who play for different high school softball teams and a teenager who was nearly starved to death by his family. You’ll work your butt off but you will know that you have made a difference in the communities we cover. If this sounds like a challenge you’d enjoy, let’s talk. Send a resume to brian@tricountyherald.com and include a brief explanation of why you’d like to work for my newspapers. No phone calls or drop-ins, please.
