Job Description

The Austin American-Statesman is looking for an entry-level reporter to work in its Round Rock bureau for two of its weekly publications -- the Round Rock Leader and the Pflugerville Pflag. This is the perfect job for a new but scrappy journalist wanting to cut their teeth at award-winning publications just north of the Live Music Capital of the World. This reporter would cover diverse communities in Williamson and Travis counties for the Leader, Pflag and the Statesman's regional audience. This reporter would be responsible for daily newsgathering for digital and social platforms and for writing news articles and features that would appear in the weekly Leader and Pflag, as well as the Statesman, print publications. Reporters in this position have been on the front lines of history, covering breaking news about the Austin bombings and George Floyd protests on social media and on our websites, including sharing and posting photographs and video. If you've got that kind of fire and desire, please apply.

Applicants should have some internship and college newspaper experience establishing and maintaining community, business and government sources to enhance fact gathering and credibility. This reporter would be expected to generate story ideas and follow up on news leads. Much of this reporter's time would be spent out reporting in the community. High School graduation, GED or equivalent required; bachelor's degree preferred. Ability to speak Spanish a plus.
