The Elgin Courier is looking for a sports and education reporter to help us take our coverage to the next level. The sports reporter is part of a two-person editorial team that covers a growing community approximately 30 miles east of Austin, Texas. We’re a copy-focused weekly newspaper that acts like a daily online. We need someone who can crank out top-quality articles covering Elgin ISD athletics, the positive stories that our young people create in our schools, school board meetings, and feature writing. Other responsibilities include photography, pagination, copy editing, photo editing, and social media use. The ideal candidate will have skills in InDesign, Quark, Photoshop, and Microsoft Office. We’re part of Granite Publications, a family-owned group of 23 community newspapers throughout Texas. We offer a competitive salary, health, vision, and dental insurance after 90 days, and look to hire people who can grow into larger roles in our company.
