Arlington, VA Seeks Reporter

ARLnow is seeking a local news reporter to join our small but growing team.

We’re looking for someone with a nose for scoops and a love of local reporting. We want a fast, clear, simple writer, comfortable with self-editing and producing multiple stories per day. Already knowing Arlington is a major plus.

We’re looking for a full-time reporter who:

  • Has experience as a local news reporter — not to be confused with experience as a writer, blogger or social media producer. (That’s great, too, but we need someone who knows news.)
  • Has equal enthusiasm for reporting on crime, local politics, restaurant openings and County Board meetings. We want a reporter who hears the discussion-worthy moments in a two-hour-long community meeting.
  • Has a good ear for a story and knows how to find interesting local stories consistently.
  • Has a demonstrated ability to quickly and accurately report on crimes, fires and other breaking news.
  • Has a high comfort level with street-level, shoe-leather journalism.
  • Has basic photo skills and is comfortable with online tools and publishing systems.

We offer a competitive salary, benefits and a fast-paced and fun working environment.

To apply, email your resume, a cover letter that addresses why you’re interested in the position and three clips to [email protected]
