Job Opportunity! Sports Reporter for Mason County Journal!

The Mason County Journal at Shelton, Washington, has an opening for a full-time sports reporter. We are a family-owned weekly newspaper located at the foot of the picturesque Olympic Mountains on Puget Sound.

The ideal candidate will possess strong writing and photography skills, as well as a background covering sports for a weekly or daily newspaper. While we mostly cover high school and youth sports, the sports reporter might also cover fishing, hunting, recreation and other community activities. A working knowledge of AP Style and strong communication skills are also a must.

We value clarity, accuracy, creative thinking, enterprise and story telling. Working knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite is a plus. You’ll join a hard-working, award-winning news team that covers all aspects of Mason County.

But what good is work if there’s nothing to do for fun? Luckily, we’re located just minutes away from hiking, biking, fishing, boating and other recreational opportunities. We’re less than a half hour away from the state capital. We’re about 90 minutes from the Pacific Ocean and a ferry ride away from downtown Seattle.

The Journal is the newspaper of record for Mason County’s 60,000 residents. We have a rich history — we’re older than the state of Washington.

We offer a competitive salary with opportunities for advancement and training, paid time off, and a health club membership. Northwest candidates encouraged.
