News Reporters | Full-time | Beloit • Fort Atkinson • Janesville • Sun Prairie - WI

APG Media of Southern Wisconsin is looking for reporters to be part of a community-focused team.

Each of these positions will involve reporting, some photography and an understanding of the importance of digital as the future of our industry and how modern subscribers want to consume their news. In southern Wisconsin, Adams Publishing Group produces 15 news publications in a variety of formats – daily, weekly and semiweekly – but what they all have in common are readers who want useful, local content. We need stories about our neighbors, our businesses, our governments and local trends.

The reporters best suited to these roles will be creative self-starters with a natural curiosity about the people in our communities. We need someone who wants to build relationships with sources, peers and mentors and will always look for ways to engage readers and get beyond the surface of stories.

Qualifications include a degree in journalism or professional reporting experience. Skills desired include photography, social media, an understanding of open records laws and the ability to get sources to speak freely, whether that’s a government official or a reluctant feature story subject. Most important is a can-do attitude and a desire to expand your skillset. If you have a hole in your resume, don’t worry. We’ve got a large group of people who can teach you and a budding development culture.

These full-time positions offer a competitive salary and benefits package including health, dental, paid vacation and 401(k). For more information about our company, visit adamspg.com/markets/#wisconsin.
