General Newspaper Reporter (Aberdeen, WA)

The Grays Harbor Newspaper Group is looking for a reporter who is also good with a camera to cover a geographic beat along the Washington Coast. The newspaper group includes The Daily World based in Aberdeen, Wash., and three weekly papers. One of the weeklies is based in the town of Ocean Shores. That will be the heart of the coverage area, but the job will sometimes entail reporting for all the publications. We’re looking for someone who writes clear stories about complex matters, and who will find and tell stories about real people and life on the coast.  We value enterprise and reporters who dig. Photography and strong social media credentials are a must. Send writing and photography samples to careers@soundpublishing.com, and make sure to include in the subject line: Attention – GR Aberdeen.
