Job Listing: Morning Editor and Enterprise Reporter at ARLnow

ARLnow.com, a pioneering local, independent online news and lifestyle publication serving Arlington, Virginia since 2010, is seeking a talented journalist and communicator as we expand our coverage.

  • Assisting with social media engagement on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
  • Enterprise local news reporting, including scoop-driven coverage of local government, cops and courts. The reporter will primarily work out of Arlington County government headquarters, the first beat reporter based there in more than a decade, and will focus on publishing one impactful article per day.

We are looking for a hungry, self-motivated journalist who…

  • …cares deeply about local issues.
  • …builds relationships and doggedly pursues scoops.
  • …is empathetic and knows how to connect with an audience.
  • …has at least 2-4 years of professional news reporting experience.
