Herald Community Newspapers seeks an entry-level journalist to report for one of our newspapers covering Long Island’s South Shore. Recent graduates and reporters in their first year or two in the field are strongly encouraged to apply.
The principal mission of our 22 award-winning newspapers is to tell the stories of the diverse people who call our communities home while capturing a deep sense of place. We cover schools, government, police, fire, the environment — you name it.
With a leadership ladder that includes senior editor, editor and assistant editor positions, there is opportunity for career growth within our newsroom. We provide a comprehensive training program that allows new and experienced journalists to hone their skills. And we offer a full benefits package, including health and disability insurance.
We take the news very seriously, but we also like to have fun together.
Herald alumni have gone on to any number of media outlets, from The New York Times and Newsday, to CNN and the BCC, Newsweek and Quartz, among many others.
Long Island residents a strong plus. Candidates must have their own car and cell phone. Send résumés, two writing samples and salary requirements to Executive Editor Scott Brinton at firstname.lastname@example.org.
